Sure, no problem. It's just that I personally think this is a release
blocker. I wouldn't want to confront my own (windows) users when they
find out this still doesn't work ... "What? They did a complete
rewrite of the working copy system, and we still can't do a case-only
rename? Sjeesh." :-).

Though I certainly realize there are a lot of "even more blocking"
issues than this one right now (and bigger and more difficult too),
and we do want to get 1.7 out the door asap. So I can understand
current focus is on those other important ones ...

Anyway, whatever the "milestone" designation of this issue, I'm
looking at it either way. Not that I can give any guarantee that I'll
get it fixed before release, ... my free time is kind of scarce these
days. But I'm trying :-) ...
