You keep avoiding my question. I have "foo\xe9" on disk. I want to
use "foo\xe9" as a filename. How do I do that if you impose UTF-8?

I used Gnumeric and put foo into the File->Save... dialog

  $ LANG=en_GB gnumeric
  $ ls | od -tx1 | head -1
  0000000 66 6f 6f e9 2e 67 6e 75 6d 65 72 69 63 0a

That's 8859-1.

  $ LANG=en_GB.UTF-8 gnumeric
  $ ls | od -tx1 | head -1
  0000000 66 6f 6f c3 a9 2e 67 6e 75 6d 65 72 69 63 0a

That's UTF-8.

Gnumeric behaves like Subversion. I am not going to discuss this
further.
