It sounds like we don't have a lot of consensus here (which is
unfortunate for Marcus, who I think signed onto this task with the
understanding that there was a pre-existing choice). Karl seems to side
with Marcus on translating because UTF-8 and the local charset for all
interesting values; Mike and I would rather be charset-neutral; Branko
wants to use UTF-8 for paths and be charset-neutral for everything
else. (I'm not sure why pathnames deserve special treatment.)

It may be time for a vote, at least after Branko clarifies his position.

(I'd just like to point out at this juncture that, if we didn't use XML
so damned much, we wouldn't have any problems being charset-neutral.
That is all.)
