Re: [RFC] Canonical Paths

I think I am -1 on fiddling with our UTF-8 decoder to support path
hacks. It's a layering violation. (And, as an aside, our UTF-8 decoder
should reject denormalized multibyte sequences if it doesn't already;
otherwise we probably have some nasty bugs. So, using 0xc0 0xXX would
be relying on a bug in our decoder, and would thus be Not a Clever
Hack.)

And I am -0 on adding any kind of complexity to support '/' or NUL in
path components. MacOS 9 is on the way out, and most Windows programs
seem to support '/' as a path separator, so pretty much no one can
safely use '/' in path components (and NUL is right out).
