Repository URL vs Authorization Path

From: Michael Jervis <mjervis_at_gmail.com>

I have an Apache 2 instance running on Windows 2003 Server with
Subversion 1.3 running within that. I'm using the mod_authz_svn
authorization system.

The problem I have is that since Apache is running on windows,
repository paths are not case sensitive. But, the paths in the
authorization files are.

So, my developers can check out:
http://svn:8080/repository/TheApplication - The actual repository name
http://svn:8080/repository/theapplication - The one the developers usually type.

But when they try and do a commit, they get a 403 forbidden error as
the authorization file has:

@developers = rw

I've tried having a second section for theapplication, however, the
system didn't like that. If I change it to theapplication then the
developers who have checked out as theapplication can commit fine, the
ones who have (correctly) checked out TheApplication can't.

Is there anyway I can do one of the following:

1) Make the repository url case-sensitive (without using linux on my server!)
2) Make the authorization repository names case-insensitive
3) Change the repository URL for a checked out repository
