A directory backend that is intended to serve multiple existing
operating systems probably shouldn't be telling any of those operating
systems whether or not they should be case-sensitive.  It's out of
scope for the project and causes arguments.

That being said, options are great to have.  If you can support
existing systems while also giving people the ability to do whatever
you happen to think is better, you'll automatically win any such
arguments.
