  The server destroys filename case

I just noticed that when the object collection server creates the
zip package from a submission, it converts all filenames to lowercase.

  This is a problem in systems where the case of file name characters
matters (such as linux/unix). If one file #includes another, and that
another file is supposed to have uppercase letters, it won't work.
(For example, if it's #include "AnotherFile.inc" but the server has
converted it to anotherfile.inc, an error will happen when trying to
render this file.)

  I just submitted an include file called WarpChess.inc, and an example
file which does #include "WarpChess.inc", and it naturally won't work
if the file is warpchess.inc instead. Not good.

  (Clearly the zip file and the scripts used support uppercase letters,
as there are files included in the zip package such as Versions944691.js.)

                                                          - Warp
