Case insensitivity is hard to achieve on OS's that aren't already
case insensitive. The only reliable way to do it is to convert filenames
to lowercase before reading/writing files (i.e., wiki.d/main.homepage
and local/main.homepage.php). I've been thinking about providing this
as an option -- how many people would be interested in such a feature?
