We're not communicating here. If you are adding a file then it cannot
already be versioned, so who is to say what the 'right' case is? The
only time you can run into trouble is when one person adds a file from
their working copy, and then someone else adds a file with the same
name but different case from their working copy without updating
first. In that case you have to ask 'why are those 2 people working on
exactly the same thing without talking to each other?'
