The object collection is painfully case-blind: some contributions were 
made from Windows at a time where the local filesystem was transforming 
filename to a single case (either all lower or all uppercase, IIRC DOS 
was all uppercase).

It take a bit of debugging when using on a filesystem which honors the 
case of filename.

You can now find everything from the collections (and more: 3dclouds was 
added there) in github:
