> what do you gain from uppercase chars in filenames?

1-unpredictable location in a sorted filename list
2-need for case-insensitivity switches to various shell and script commands
3-many additional opportunities to mistype long unpronounceable, immemorable strings

Case sensitive filesystems are one of the most annoying things about FOSS. :-(
