Exporting files and OS case-sensitivity

Tinderbox happily supports notes with titles varying in case, e.g. "Some Note" vs. "Some note". It also supports case sensitive export in file naming, e.g. "Some Note.html" vs. "Some note.html".

But, by default, macOS is case-insensitive (i.e. most users' host OS). This creates a problem if Tinderbox exports "Some Note.html" vs. "Some note.html" to the same OS folder. What happens is the filename of second to be exported is coerced to the filename of the case-insensitively matched file and the first-exported file is silently over-written.

Workarounds (if there is a need to export notes) are:
