Use a case sensitive filesystem for CVS (not just a case retentive one!).

I won't get into a legthy debate, but rather than making the CVS distribution friendly to all file systems, the answer is "get a different filesystem?"

While I agree that there will be repositories that don't work on case-insensitive file systems, that's an issue for the maintainer of that repository. As more maintainers become aware that case-insensitive file systems are a real possibility, many will change their repositories to be file-system agnostic.

While it's true the problem can be worked around, it just seems to me the CVS maintainers would want to be as compatible as possible, especially when the change is pretty easy.
