I understand the case sensitivity problem, since tables are stored in
separate files for some engines (I think).  There's a simple solution,
though, use lower_case_table_names=1, in which case tables will be
stored in lower case and lookups become case insensitive.  No need to
change SQL statements.  You may have to set this before you import the
database on the new system.  Doesn't seem like such a big deal to me,
after a little bit of RTFM.
