import statement is case sensitive

Interesting article. However the PYTHONCASEOK as suggested in the
article does not seem to work. I set it to PYTHONCASEOK = 1 and import
still insists on being case-sensitive.

Also python -h has nothing helpful in this respect. Any other ideas
barring changing OS and renaming directories would be appreciated.

Thanks
