The problem is that you now break the windows working copy. Subversion
allows you (even on windows with some tricks) to crate a directory in the
repository that contains both test.c and Test.c. You will never be able to
check out that project on windows.

Maybe there is no general solution for a portable system to allow both:
max. features on all supported OS, and portability. Maybe there should be
a switch in subversion to use either portability mode or OS specific mode?
