I'm sorry but I don't understand your argumentation. FFS is already
case preserving. I want to make it case insensitive in addition.
I have seen three terms used:
case sensitive: what we are used to with BSD FFS, HFS+ with the case
case preserving: comparisons are done without regard to case, but ls
shows files having the same case as when they were created. HFS+
(without the case-sensitive option)
case insensitive: in addition to comparisons ignoring case, all
filenames are presented in either upper or lower, depending on the
system. I think pre-NTFS on windows is like this.
