If the file was automatically created, it probably wouldn't make a 

If the user is trying to learn Haskell, they might be confused a little 
about case-sensitivity of module/file names

If the user is moving a Config.hs file between some of their own xmonad 
compile, and ~/.xmonad, it would be easier if it had the same case.  In 
fact, this reason feels like it is personally relevant to me enough (if 
I were using debian) that I would prefer "Config.hs"

but these reasons are perhaps not so strong if you (or others?) feel 
strongly about it
