It is not that easy.
We may think of sending back the mangled name if these files are found,
but that would mean that every time a directory listing is retrieved, we
should lower case every file and check in the list if any file has a
duplicate, and if it is true substitute the duplicate with a mangled
now try to do that in a directory with 10.000 files and not timeout ...
I may think of a special option, to do that, but I do no think we should
do that by default.
