That's good, but I think Jullian also included another example that wasn't 
case folding.  It was the case of what Windows does with filenames with no 
extention.  It accepts either      george   or  george.   (note the 
trailing dot) as the same file.   I assume there are other cases that we 
haven't thought of.  We probably need to make the wording a bit more 
generic, but we could use case-folding as an example.
