At the nuts and bolts level, though, case-insensitive filesystems are a big
pain -- they cause _lots_ of problems, and this is magnified greatly when
they must co-exist with case-sensitive filesystems.

After all, I'm sure many users would also ask `why can't the computer just
_see_ that's what I want, and do it?' ... :-)
