I committed a Python script check-case-insensitive.py yesterday.

Using this script you can avoid getting into the biggest mess which is
adding a case sensitive file name clash to the repository.

Although there are plenty of potential problems with the client not
understanding case insensitive file systems those problems don't occur
very often.

Don't use the Perl one, I will remove it at some point.
