Detecting case sensitivity

I found an old discussion 
(https://www.cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2007-08/msg00594.html) about the 
possibility of adding a _PC_CASE_INSENSITIVE flag to pathconf.  Has 
anyone thought further about this?  I would find this useful for emacs[*].

I've taken a quick look at the pathconf code, and it looks like it 
wouldn't be difficult to add this.  I could try to provide a patch if 
the powers that be would be receptive.
