So I have to reformat my Mac OS X file systems in order to check out FreeBSD 
source trees on them because the jot(1) regression test relies on having two 
files in the same directory that differ only in case? :-)  No one is saying 
you should be able to check out FreeBSD source trees using 8.3 DOS filenames, 
but I think avoiding case collisions makes a lot of sense.
