IMHO, Yes. Subversion isn't the problem, Windows is. If its
half-implemented case sensitivity doesn't really work, it is not
someone else's problem, it is Microsoft's problem.

The fact that Microsoft operating systems doesn't distinguish between
"abc" and "AbC" shouldn't be other people's problem (especially when
they can enjoy a full case-sensitivity).

IMHO implementing a workaround just because Windows handles stuff
differently shouldn't happen. I might be in the minority but I hope
others feel the same. :)
