Getting mutiple files with the same name into PDM Workgroup vault

My company wants to start using PDM Workgroup.  They have been saving there SW files in windows up to this point, and have MANY files which contain unique content, BUT have the same file name.  They were able to get away with this in the windows enviroment, but PDM Workgroup will not allow multiple files to have the same name.  Their "work around" to this is to make ALL .sldprt files "virtual components".  I don't like this idea, because we will loose pretty much ALL of PDM's functionallity for these files.  They don't care about that right now, they just want to get the files into the vault.  Does anyone foresee any other problems this might create?  I am trying to convince them NOT to do this, help!!!!
