Please don't! In a case-preserving filesystem GURBA.FOO and Gurba.foo is the
same file...

Btw. Frank N., it's impossible to rename 'gurba.foo' to 'Gurba.foo' under
ram.xfs. It works fine on a VFAT/NEWFATFS-partition (using Thing), although
mv fails there as well since gurba.foo and Gurba.foo is the same file.
