Look into ways to force cross-platform
consistency efficiently.

    The reference noted in RFE 1374695

    http://www.iana.org/assignments/character-sets

    indicates that encoding names ought
    to be case insensitive.

    If they should be case-insensitive (and I'm happy to go with
    the IANA recommendation here) then the easiest approach is
    to lower-case the filenames. People adding their own
    encodings (fairly rare except for people extending tclkit,
    and they're just adding back files we've already written)
    can adapt to that restriction.

    can you at least check the status
    of this please?

    still something to sort out, but
    not worth blocking 8.5.0 for.
