Ugh -- you mean to tell me that the filesystem itself might not know
what encoding a filename is in? In that case, examining the
directory with "ls" or a gooey file browser would show gibberish,
right? Unless "ls" or the gooey file browser is *guessing* what
encoding this particular sequence of bytes is probably in.
Do any real systems do this?
