Good, so? The so-called "Case Insensitive Filesystems" can still have
capitals and lowercase letters in :) The idea is that when such a
system is using, the repository to take place, nothing more. You'll
still have your files checked out and in correctly :)

Dunno about this one, I have seen "case sensitiveness" inside java -
when you attach some resource, say res.gif to the project and they try
to find it as res.GIF - you can't.
