I reject your assumption that the choice is between safe and fast ;)

I care about data, too, that's what I do (care about data). I'm not cavalier
about it, I know what I want to do, and I do it. If I want to change all
lowercase filenames to uppercase, that's what I want to do. If I thought I
might clobber some files in the same directory first, I'd check that before
I started. 

For someone that knows what they're doing, your script is slower than it 
needs to be. For someone that doesn't know what they're doing, it's certainly
safer. 

We're coming dangerously close to off-topic, though, and this is certainly 
a dead horse, seeing as how the original poster already did the work he was 
trying to do, so I'll let it drop here.
