CaSe insensetive OS not handled well

Hi all,

It's about:

On OS-es that does not distinguish between file.c and File.C working
with subversion leads from annoying results to a loss of data. It's
not just about the urls, the filenames, but a side things like ignore
files - xx.tmp, xx.Tmp, XX.TMP, etc are the same file under windows
and MacOS and u have to have quite a big imagination to create a list
with all possible filenames to ignore (or write a program that
generates all possible combinations in a 10mb list) and be sure after
that you have missed something and let the objects and intermediate
files in the repository. Is this that hard to be made? I have seen
thousands of posts, especially on the TSVN mailing lists and forums
(and that's why you don't see much posts for it here - most people
complain to the TSVN since this is the thing they "see" and "work
with" in windows).

A solution:
#ifdef WIN32
       #define strcmp strcmpcaseinsensitive or whatever

It is an ugly solution but you got the idea.
