I'm investigating the possibility of modifying a CVS server, to make
it possible to resurect a file using a different case.  The idea is
that when a given file is deleted (cvs rm) at some point, and a user
later creates a file with the same name except for the case, the old
file on the server would be resurected with the new case.

There already is some code that deals with case-insensitivity at
various places, including add.c.  However, I can't easily get a big
picture what those defines (eg. FILENAMES_CASE_INSENSITIVE) are used

Is there some source of information I missed ?
What behaviour does exactly FILENAMES_CASE_INSENSITIVE trigger ?
Is there by chance some already existing patch that would do something
like that ?

Would cvs developpers value a patch that would break this huge add()
function into a number of manageable static funcs ?
