I'm not actually sure that would work...  the RCS file would simply be
with the old case.  There isn't an easy way around it - it doesn't
affect windows clients obviously because they're not case sensitive.  If
the file is checked in from a Linux client the case will be correct
anyway (because if it wasn't the developer wouldn't have checked it
in...) so you're looking at a situation where a windows developer has
created a file in the wrong case then checked it in for a linux
developer to use.  In that case you're probably going have to manually
rename the file in the repository (and hit the offending windows
developer over the head with a rubber mallet).
