 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.
