------- Additional Comments From bodewig@apache.org  2001-09-27 02:55 -------
Additional operating systems where the default filesystem is case insensitive
include OS/2 and OpenVMS (not sure about OS/390).  My main concern is that it is
less dependent on the operating system but depends on the filesystem itself.  

HFS+ devices under MacOS X, VFAT mounts under Linux (or any other Unix like
system mounting local "Windows drives" on the i386 platform), SMB or NFS mounts
of filesystems residing on a server that runs a case insensitive filesystem and
so on will not be case sensitive although the operating system would indicate
the filesystems are sensitive.

The opposite effect would be a Windows client accessing an NFS or Samba exported
filesystem from a Unix box.

I have no idea what the canonical path will be - whether Java will just look at
the operating system, but I see too many "we don't really know" stuff here -
we shouldn't rush and put it into Ant 1.4.1 IMHO, let's patch the 1.5 branch
and collect some experience with it.
