Is there a reason Thunar has to ignore my locale and do things in a
non-standard way by default?  Wouldn't it be better for Thunar to sort
things according to LC_COLLATE by default, and allow users who wished
to override the locale at the application level (i.e. specific to
Thunar) set MiscCaseSensitive to either TRUE *or* FALSE?

As it stands Thunar isn't integrated with the wider environment and so
the user has to configure it separately.  If all utilities and
applications did this, then LC_COLLATE would be meaningless.
