UFS still a bad idea?

in Mac Software edited January 2014
I am in the process of writing an application for OS X Server and i'm hoping some of those more aquainted with Apple can answer this.

Is UFS ever going to be actually supported or are there any plans to make HFS+ case sensitive? I'm wrangling the company CVS server on OS X Server and it's starting to become a problem.

For those who might not understand, try this.

shell$ mkdir honk

shell$ cd HONK

shell$ pwd


shell$ cd ..

shell$ cd HonK

shell$ pwd


This is a major black eye for OS X. This is, in m y not-so-damn-humble opinion, like windows still having the 6x3 filename limit.

Now, I love Apple as much as anyone but they had better fix this if they are serious about moving the Xserve into the small to midrange server market.

I cant help but hope in my heart of hearts that Apple might move to UFS.
