I can probably work out a way of sorting the root in loginfo, but both
CvsWeb and ViewCvs should be case insensitive on NT, because you can't
solve case issues on the client always.  For example it's perfectly
possible for me to checkout the 'cvsroot' module on NT, which is different
from the 'CVSROOT' module, but also exactly the same module...  Filenames
can also have their case munged in different ways.

The CVS/Root file is generated by the client, which has no idea what case
the server is using for its repository, so that can't be changed.
