I'm approaching 20 years of Unix use, and in many places I detest
case-insensitive crap. DOS filenames and SuSE's default settings
for pattern-matching in their 'vi' clone leap to mind.
Here, however, I think Guyhelm is completely wrong.
Sort the names alphabetically, case-insensitive. That will be easier
for most users, including long-time Unix users.
