Just in case the same filenames with different casing have been added to
a project, it's important to see all these versions together, and not
spread across the entire list.
Summary: the case sensitivity of a file system does not imply any
specific sort order. The same for the sort order in different
applications (file browsers...). The *display* of a file list has to be
optimized for *human* reading, i.e. case insensitive unless there exists
a special important meaning of upper/lower case names.
