Or: abandon case insensitivity. A directory that has 100,000 files
with no sub directories is typically machine generated, as part of
some process. An audit for case insesitive name collisions, and a
review of the process that generates or uploads such files, might be
easy to activate for Zhanxiaoxu's environment.
