8.3 don't impact completion. Having to uppercase the firt

completion is not an arcane legacy. It's the main reason
unix users can hapilly live with cli and dos/windows users

Then you can explain us how sticking one uppercased
in the middle of a lowercase hierarchy is supposed to
improve user-friendliness.

What's wrong with stroring documents in ~ subdirectories (in
a My Documents one if you like), with only important ones in
~ ? What's wrong with having a clear user subtree instead of
this strange gui/cli toplevel schizophreny ? Why do you
think that multiplying symlinks is a good thing ? Not that
symlinks themselves are a great thing, but when one relies
on multiple symlinks to make his hierarchy work I'd say
there is a major problem with the way this hierarchy is
