Distributing files on a Unix system.

   Second, when Genera takes a logical pathname and translates it into a Unix
   physical pathname, it automatically seems to generate file names in all lower
   case letters.  This caused another problem, which we got around by converting
   all Unix files to all lower case, but this was a bit inconvenient.  Is there
   anyway to specify in a logical pathname that the file should have some mix of
   lower and upper case letters?

Modulo some bugs, the virtual file server that the logical pathname
represents is uppercase only.  Pathnames are translated to the default case
of the target file system, which is lowercase for Unix.
