I can't see an option for ext2 in the mount man page. If ext2 doesn't do 
it, then ext3 wont either.

This sounds like a fairly trivial userspace filesystem task, although if 
you have serious performance requirements then that might not be the 
right answer. Are case sensitive clients also going to be using the 
filesystem, or just the case insensitive ones?
