filename case insensitivity in subversion?

At risk of beating a dead horse, I have to ask if there is a way to make
svnserve case insensitive?

We have users of studio 2008 that are having issues as studio 2008 seems
to lose filename case persistence.

MS admitted the issue for studio 2005 and even patched one instance, but
I can't find anything for 2008 yet.


I also don't see a way to modify the python scripts when using svnserve.
I think we are using pre-compiled binaries. If we compiled everything
ourselves (svnserve, not the apache interface), could we use things like
the following?

Also, does anyone have experience using that script? It looks like it
just throws an error when case sensitivity issues occur? It doesn't
actually do anything like change all names to lower case, etc? What is
its actual behavior?

Has any (recent) thought been make to make subversion archives case
insensitive (maybe even on an repository by repository basis)? We do
mixed development here and some systems actually are case sensitive. It
might be nice to be able to create Microsoft only repositories with
case-insensitivity or a force to all lower/upper case.
