Good point, it needs to be documented more clearly -- specifically that
it expects the locale-specific encoding and that urls be uri-encoded.
It will convert to utf8 and normalize on '/' for filesystem path
separators, and use the correct case for existing files on
case-insensitive platforms.

Do you (or anyone) feel it is not really a worthwhile addition? It
seems so to me, but I don't have strong feelings about it -- clients can
get the job done, it's just a bit of a hassle.
