So "svn mv todo todo" will be a case-only rename, I guess that's OK if
it is what users expect.

What if the file is already lower-case "todo"? Subversion is happy to
do

  svn rm todo
  svn cp todo_at_base todo

to generate a replace on commit. Should "svn mv todo todo" generate a
replace when the file is already "todo"?
