Case sensitivity for folders?

Hi all, one question

I was trying to debug a puzzling case with my nametrans rules where it
attempted to create a new folder 'Inbox' which failed, as the server
already has a folder 'INBOX' (gmail, I am looking at you).

Are IMAP folders case sensitive in general? Should we treat folders with
different cases as equivalent? I am a bit unsure how we should handle
this case in general.
