Well, a Subversion repository is a case-sensitive entity, regardless
of whether the client or server is running Windows, Mac OS X, Linux
or any other OS. So svn_load_dirs.pl is just conforming to that. So
that's why it is the way it is. I can see that it would be useful in
some cases to allow case-insensitive loading, but I don't think
anybody has implemented that so far.
