Ok, let's think about the use case here. My idea is that this is going to be
used on a new WINEPREFIX on a call to wineprefixcreate. We create a new
directory here and can make sure we're not doing anything stupid here. I'm
not suggesting to use this for the whole file system. If I have two files
with filenames that only differ in capitalization, this will only add
That's why I still think having an option to delete unwanted files is useful.
