Control over the case of a file/folder name
Currently bliss always performs case sensitive comparisons of music tags to file/folder names. It should be optional to force bliss to consider what a file/folder name should be in light of a preferred case.
For instance, when using <fileextension> to organise music files by their file type, it would be useful to be able to enforce capitals, otherwise on case sensitive file systems we may end with folders like mp3/, MP3/ and so on.
casing control is really missing, furthermore on linux storage. i've got many folders with casing differences, and it's a problem when trying to access them from windows.

I'd love to see this feature implemented! I want to list all files/folders as lower case only, but leave the actual tags in title case. Parameterizing the token makes the most sense to me.
Yeah - I was actually wondering if simply varying the case of the token would be elegant:
Unfortunately it's difficult to communicate all capitalisation possibilities in that way. But simply "parameterising" the token could work:
in fact, a solution could be to have a capitalisation enforcement for the tags (as it exists in bliss) and an other capitalisation in file/folder generation.
<track name> write track name like the tag,
<track name upper> write track name upper case,
<track name lower> write track name upper case,

Using Bliss on Vortexbox and this feature would be so useful!

That would be my number one request - at the very least for file extensions.
I currently have both flac and MP3, and I would *love* to sort them by mp3/artist/album and flac/artist/album
album artist/album artist - album/....
ANATHEMA\Anathema - Judgment\...
I would like to be able to capitalise the first <album artist> and name the second <album artist> to lower case

I would like to be able to force <fileextension> to be lower or upper when naming folders.
Being somewhat fussy (ok anal retentive) I would like to be able to select Case Rules for File/Folder Names so that they can match the Tags (apart from replacing spaces with underscores).
I am running bliss on a linux host and it turns out automatic moving files is not an option for me because I get duplicated entries like "Sigur Ros" "sigur Ros" and "sigur ros". I would be perfectly happy to force everything to lower case.
I would like to be able to force naming to lower case. I find navigating a file structure that is capitalised or all upper case quite awkward under linux (not to mention the extra strain on the shift key ;-) ).
