RE: CaSe insensetive OS not handled well

Right, that's one file, not two. My question was whether it's reasonable to
have two different files whose name only differ in case. The one scenario I
saw posted is using lower case c for C files and upper case C for C++. My
guess is a group that expects some of it's developers might use case
insensitive systems won't choose such a scheme.

Yes, I would expect to be able to change the case of a file name in the
repository same as I can change the case of a file name on my computer.
