cool.  i was thinking in particular about our university's netware SAN,
which has VERY sparse support for whiz-bang features like capital letters
(which could be enabled, but the uni doesn't seem to want to pay the price
in RAM to load the right modules) but is remote-mountable by large numbers
of machines with lots of weird demands.

so what does gnomevfs tend to do with filesystems that don't have support
for cap-letters?  i admit that i'm not that familiar with it :)  does it
translate the characters into something that can actually be stored and
read back by gnomevfs?  or what?
