And what happens if someone mounts a NFS-volume on Windows ? :-)

Maybe it can simply be handled by using apply, since it is no problem on
Windows to have all files lowercase one could for example apply an "move
srcFile tolower(srcFile)" to the files.

Adding (just another) attribute to (to work around windows) would be also a
solution. Next question: *Where* do we add it then? It's not specific to any
task, so it must be a "magic" (global) property for ant?
