It sure would be nice to have some way of working with files in a
case-insensitive manner. One of my biggest challenges integrating SVN
with Window's SCC is that SCC doesn't preserve the case of file (or
directory) names. After all, this is Windows, so noone cares case about
case, right? Grrr....

I have to get a list of every file file SVN knows about, and compare the
files SCC asks for with the files on SVN's list. Not only is this
slooooooow, but it isn't exactly bulletproof, as there's nothing
stopping SCC from asking for files from different SVN repositories.
Also, there's no good way to know when I might need to update my list
due to external operations.

This isn't the dev list though, so I'm just dreaming here. While I'm
dreaming, I'd like a Ferrari too. :-)
