Yes, when they contain only uppercase in the name. So all lowercase
and mixed case is fine. I suggest that Monotone dont use all uppercase
for this reason. Though I will admit that its a rare case, but at the
same time its easy for Monotone to avoid the problem.

".mt" would be my first suggestion.
