 I'm of two minds here
  - All paths are case-insensitive on windows systems, only upper-casing
 the drive letter seems like altering 1 character of many
  - Drive letters are uppercase by convention, paths are usually lower-case
 (unless a system path), leaving the drive letter as the only character
 that needs upper-casing.

 Due to the PHP constants always returning uppercase drive letters, I'm
 inclined to go that way through.

 [attachment:33265.diff] implements that, still not 100% sure which way
