I imagine that this is a consequence of the cross-platform nature of
subversion. Other platforms *are* case sensitive. Changing this
feature would mean that your working copy would exhibit different
behavior, depending on which operating system you were using
on any particular day. (For instance, your working copy might be
on a FAT partition, to allow dual booting between XP and linux.)

Agreed, I've relied on it for years.
