Speaking of which, both Samba and Wine suffer from the lack of support
of cases-insensitivness in the kernel. Now, I'm not suggesting that
we should push for that (I'm aware of the past discussions on LKML, and
I must agree with Linus), but we should push for *something* that's
acceptable and helps us solve the negative lookups a bit faster than a
full directory listing every time.
