Having grown up in Unix I might tend to disagree about this being
a bug, but it is definitely not a language issue, so I'll end that rant.
I have to say, though, that allowing upper case it is consistent with
the python property of adapting to any environment.

My pleasure, especially after the fix. Here is some more:
A while ago (21a1, 1.1.8, OS2) I noticed that after a succesful:
the following failed:
from packag import modul
even though someDir is on sys.path.
However, the import would succeed after:
(Note the backslash before modul.py)
I used this to test modul.py before importing it.
I thought this was somewhat weird because of the existence
of os.abspath() (name ok?) that provides a 'normalized'
form of any full file name.
If you want this behavior confirmed in 21a2 just
let me know. This one is so easy to work around that
I did not bother reporting it as a bug at the time.
