Changing name capitalization under Windows

From: <Luke.Powell_at_bjservices.com>

We are operating under Windows and are bringing some old files under
version control that are from old DOS days when the filenames were
capitalized by default, e.g. FOO.C. We'd like to rename these according to
more modern standards, but when we try doing "svn rename FOO.C foo.c" we
are told that we "Cannot move path 'FOO.C' onto itself." So far the only
alternative has been to do it directly to the repository, e.g. "svn rename
svn://my.rep/FOO.C svn://my.rep/foo.c" but doing it that way generates a
lot of revisions and is very slow. Is there any other way to do what we
need to do?
