Actually, just a note that PmWiki is case-sensitive only on
systems that have case-sensitive filenames.  On Windows and
Macintosh OS/X systems, PmWiki tends to act case-insensitively,
and both Group1.Sidebar and Group1.SideBar point to the same

Trying to make this totally consistent across operating systems
has proven to be a bit of a pain, so I'm willing to live with
the inconsistency, at least for the time being.  At least
things remain internally consistent for any given site or
operating system.  (There can be difficulties, however,
when migrating PmWiki pagefiles from a Windows platform
to Unix or vice-versa.)
