A solution to the case problem?

After hacking around for a little while this morning, I came up with the
following hack.  It seems to work for Lispm-to-Lispm renaming, whether
it be local or remote.  I'm not making any guarantees, but this should
help those who like to rename the case on their files.

To use it:  o Compile the functions into a file (e.g. >me>foo.bin"
        o Load the binary file on the remote and server machines
            o use :Rename File <old> <new>


;;; -*- Mode: LISP; Syntax: Common-lisp; Package: FS; Base: 10 -*-
1;; This hack allows one to rename a file and change its case.  It only
;; works for LMFS to LMFS renaming.

;; This file should be loaded on both the file server and the remote
;; machine.
