Not to contribute to this thread, but I think you're right in the
application would not break. I think you're wrong in thinking that
casting case-sensitivity is not useful. I remember my Pascal and BASIC
days too. I hated starting at code where something my written 7
different ways, especially on larger projects. It was much harder to
enforce coding styles. While I certainly don't need the ability to say
"tmp" and "Tmp" are two different things, I do want the code to break if
I meant the former and I typed the latter.
