Please, don't tell I told you it's not possible. I explained to you how
you can work around that problem, I pointed you to the FAQ with detailed
instructions on how to rename a file under Windows, I even explained to
you why you can't _directly_ rename "Abc" to "abc".
I never told you that this isn't possible. It's just not possible to do
it directly.
