That is just one element of the problem; The other one is making the
file system lookups case insensitive, and that may take some work.
It is a good idea, but not a 1.0 feature.

+I suggest leaving case insensitviy as an app.config feature since the
+only ways around it I can think of are expensive lookup permutations
+or forcing a dir scan for the upper and lowercase wildcard of the
+first filename letter then doing a case-insensitive compare (actually
+that second idea might not be that expensive on avg if the 1st open()
+attempt fails). I believe you'll run into the same case
+insensitivity issues with the Mac filesystems.
+But let's not mix issues in one bug.
+re: automatic path separator conversion
+I know you guys have a short runway for 1.0, so auto-pathseparator-
+conversion might make some great low-hanging fruit once you guys get
+past the 1.0 post-release bug rush.
