No, it wouldn't. The issue isn't mixed case, and converting to all
upper case doesn't help. The issue is that there are two files whose
names are distinct in Unix but considered equal in Windows (and Mac).

Case issues are one cause of this. Unicode encoding problems are
another. But converting file names to a single form won't help
that. You could help it by converting file names that clash to unique
names, like filen~01.txt... :-) but that's rather ugly...
