Since it's relevant I'll mention the CIOPFS (case-insensitive on
purpose) FUSE module that was made a while back.  It works fine as far
as I can tell (and I believe Mac supports FUSE), it's just waiting for
some glue code to be actually used with a Wine installation.

Wine still needs to be made aware when it's on CIOPFS though (similar to
how it behaves on fat32 partitions)
