Subject: Re: BUG FOLLOWUP: Case insensitivity in worktrees

This just bit me; it seems quite old, and I wanted to propose an alternative solution (maybe it doesn’t work for some reason I’m unaware of):
Why not just preserve the existing semantics of the main worktree by checking the worktree refs first unconditionally and only fall back to the main refs when the ref doesn’t exist locally in the worktree?
This would have the added benefit of allowing power users to override refs in their worktrees and would, if I’m not mistaken, preserve the semantics of the main worktree in case-insensitive and case-sensitive filesystems. 
Anywho, just a thought.  I could work on a patch if this approach makes sense at least as an intermediary until there’s a pluggable storage backend for non-FS stores 😉   (I'd also be somewhat interested in implementing a postgres/sql storage backend if this project is moving forwards __ ).
