The issue is more complex than that. There is an interaction with common lisp
which is not, by default, case sensitive. Some of the filenames are passed as
strings and some are passed as symbols (for historic reasons as some of the
old lisps required symbols and ignored case). We can't set the common lisp to
be case sensitive as Axiom uses both upper and lower case functions of the 
same name (due to the use of Boot, which IS case sensitive).

There is no such thing as a simple job.
