Huh. Well, that's my new-datum-of-the-day then. I've only been working 
with Macs for a few months (iPhone stuff), and everything certainly 
LOOKED case sensitive, in things like the terminal. That plus "Mac = 
FreeBSD + special kernel" made me jump to the semi-erroneous conclusion 
I did!

So once again I'm happy to be wrong, because I learned something new!
