Anything you do to a versioned file goes through subversion, not
directly through the Windows API. Subversion handles those transactions,
not TSVN. Subversion is case-sensitive, and there is nothing TSVN can do
to change that.

The only place you can argue about the case-sensitivity would be on the
subversion list.
