Since PHP more tightly integrating with Java in PHP5, it would be very benneficial if class names could be stored as case sensitive, or at least an option was available in php.ini. It seems strange that some things are case sensitive in PHP, while other things are not.  It would be easier to follow if everything were case sensitive... function names, variable names, class names, etc.

This is "Won't fix". This will break enourmous number of applications. Still in PHP 5 one get the name used when declaring the class whenever needed. Look at serialization ot get_class_name() incompatibility of PHP 5 with PHP 4.
