Things aren't always that simple.

In our case, we have a mixed shop. Much of the development is done on
Unix, but parts are on Windows because they are creating Windows bits.

In the Unix part, there may be a.foo and A.foo files in the same
directory. We can prohibit that by coding standard for locally
created files. But unfortunately some of our files are third party
packages, which were created with their own coding standards, and may
have names like that.

So "follow coding standards" isn't the complete answer if the
environment is complex.
