Question I've always wondered, does anyone ever really name two different
files with the same name but different case? What's the scenario?

And how could this possibly be handled in a mixed OS environment? If a
development group expects any work to be done on 'insensitive' platforms,
does it seem likely they'll choose conflicting names?

How about a repository-wide setting to deterimine whether names are case
sensitive or insensitive?
