One reason that nobody found it *really* important yet, is that it is no
big deal working around it! Case sensitivity is only a problem if you have
a team using both UNIX and Windows clients on the same repository. If you
have a pure Windows client team, nobody will be able to commit
{test,Test,TEST} files in the same directory. If you have a pure UNIX
client team, well no problem..

So a mixed client team can setup a project policy to forbid committing
{test,Test,TEST} files, and thus avoid the problem. Should it ever happen
in spite of the policy, the sinner must fix the problem and bye everyone a
beer. Then life can continue. No big deal IMHO, especially considering how
extremely rare {test,Test,TEST} is in practice.

Best regards.
