I don't see any benefit in using uppercase filesnames, but I do see a 
disadvantage. I still don't understand why TT did it to Qt.  All it means is 
that code that compiles on Windows (with filenames that are not case 
sensitive) may not compile on Linux.

For this reason, I think KDE should avoid their use entirely.
