Turns out there are quite a few UNIX and Windows users out there with case insensitive filesystems and this particular design decision seems to do very little other than to break archives that are ever checked out and then recommitted by people who use them.

Does the rearrangement of the structure in this part of the design have any positive effects? It was brought up in this thread by a user who finds it counterintuitive. I don't believe this user is alone, but I wouldn't be complaining if it hasn't caused me to actually break archives when working on cross-platform, multi-user, distributed applications.
