Handle case-insensitive filesystems in the updater

When uploading files (or files in directories) that differ only in case, on Windows (due to its default file system being case-insensitive), there are problems such as one and the same file being listed as local-only and as up-to-date.

Since case-insensitive filesystems are prevalent (MacOSX' default mode is to run HFS+ in case-insensitive mode, too), let's let the updater pretend that all of the file systems are case-insensitive and warn when the local one is not.
