Is this ubuntu brokenness, gnu brokenness, some standards body that
collectively dropped acid, or a simple mistake nobody's bothered to correct
because they think it's intentional?
This is clearly broken behavior, I'm wondering where the brokenness
originated. (I'm guessing Microsoft might have been involved if it's a
standards body. After all, MS filesystems are case insensitive...)
