You can prevent two confilicting names getting into the repository by
using his pre-commit hook script:

http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/contrib/hook-scripts/check-case-insensitive.pl

I think (based on the thread you had going on the TortoiseSVN list) that
  you are looking for better support for case insensitive file systems
and I am with you on that. The Subversion client does need to become
case insensitive on windows. I don't believe any changes are needed to
the server - the script mentioned above prevents case conflicts at the
server end with no change to the server code at all. Having said that,
I don't believe it is trivial to do.

Martin.
