I didn't even think about that.  But with case sensitivity disabled the file
will be selected by "fo?.txt".

The only way to access the case of a file from Java on OpenVMS is currently
to use File#listFiles().

Looks reasonable.  BTW, would it be reasonable to add constants like ON_VMS
to Os?  In this case the Os.isFamily("openvms") would be run quite a few
times...  Or the Os class could of course also cache results.

Don't quite understand what that would do :-)
