We have a rather weird setup in that our loadsets are case-insensitive, yet they're stored on case-sensitive filesystems on the servers. Every now and then, we'll run into the case where Apple or another vendor will change the case of a directory, which means that we wind up with transcripts like this:

d ./foo/Bar
f ./foo/bar/baz

On lapply, clients can't access ./foo/bar/baz because on the case-sensitive server, it's ./foo/Bar/baz. Obviously we can (and do) script around this so that our transcripts match the filesystem, but it would be nice if fsdiff had an option to preserve the case in these situations.
