Hi Dmitrey,

Since this is a real problem for cross platform use,
it needs to be addressed.

As a rule, two files with the same name expect for
capitalization is a bad idea.  Clearly these names
do not distinguish the file content.

Additionally, the two files contain serious DRY/SPOT
violations <URL:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Don%27t_repeat_yourself>
so it looks like this bug report offers a chance to address
those as well.
