While I know nothing of Rust, Diesel, or CrateDB, I do know that Windows uses a case-insensitive file system and this fix doesn't seem to take that into consideration. However, the author of the fix does note:

> I believe crates.io's namespace is case insensitive let me know if that's wrong

Someone should probably validate that.

Not quite. Windows uses a case insensitive API on top of a case sensitive file system.

FUN FACT: As of 2017, Windows 10 is (partially) binary-compatible to Ubuntu Linux. Any application that was originally compiled for Linux will still be case sensitive when running on Windows 10.

Right. I forgot NTFS is in fact case sensitive. Thanks.
