Lowercasing all path accesses would work for native files but
it would mess up our archive handling. What I could do is make
only the archive filename translator lowercase and expect all
files on the filesystem to be lowercase.

I'd have to modify start.sh to check for this though because a
lot of people wouldn't know the difference and ask questions
about missing files :-)

Indeed we need clear this up personally I'd go for all lowercase
that way there's no ambiguity. Win32 it wont affect as its case 
insensitive ( although case preserving ). Just need to know what
the big man Andreas says.
