I think it would be very good to have such a discution. It seems to
me this is one performance hotpoint for both projects.

This is something I don't really like: to change the filename's case
behind user's back. From my POV, it's not acceptable. I know I'd be
pissed if that happened to me.
I think we'd be much better off if we relied on some kernel feature.
The current mechanism works just fine, if you want the same behaviour,
but faster, you need such and such in the kernel. It's a much simpler
(and cleaner) case to make then to change such fundamental behaviour.
