[Mono-list] VFAT vs Unix filesystems...

Maybe mono could be configured whether to use case sensitive assembly names
or not.  We could store the setting in machine.config somewhere.  The
default would be to use what we have now.

Just an idea...

It's fairly easy.  For each component of a path, dirread the
be there directory, and strcasecmp for what is being looked for next.  This
should continue until a 100% hit is found.

The problem is this is prone to being tricked.
