Supporting case insensitive filenames under Unix indeed requires
some (fairly substantial) modifications to the core -- it's decidedly
There are also some changes that need to be made to be
able to support non-ASCII characters in filenames, and since
it's hard to do either of these in a backwards-compatible way,
I've been hoping to take care of them together instead of
separately. (If we eliminate the need for backwards compatibility
it's less difficult, but still non-trivial.) I've also been
looking at the possibility of allowing spaces in pagenames.
At any rate, I don't know when such changes are likely to materialize,
depends on my schedule. If we can come up with a clean and efficient
implementation and migration plan it could happen fairly quickly.
