No, it's a huge difference. Mac OS X is not case insensitive. Some
filesystems are, but the OS is not. What that means in real world
terms is that I can (and sometimes do) have both case sensitive and
insensitive filesystems mounted at the same time. Thus, a case
sensitivity setting cannot be client wide or OS wide. It needs to be
confined to a much smaller area, either the repository or some subset
of it.
