By the way, I had this happen the first time I tried to clone the Linux
kernel with Git. Iptables has a bunch of files that are the same name
with differing case. I had thought that there was something terribly
wrong with Git; it turns out that it's really just HFS that's retarded.
Actually, the iptables people are retarded, too. They think that it's
not a problem, because obviously no one on Mac OS X should ever need to
work on the Linux kernel.
