So it seems this discussion has petered out, so no consensus was found.
Can we please come to an agreement? Which approach should be used?

If I don't hear anything I'll prepare a backport of the current trunk
code for 1.7.x and 1.6.x (since this is a data corruption bug).

But I don't want to spend extra time on nominating things that will
end up being reverted, so I'll ask again:
Is the current trunk code good enough for everyone?

To refresh our collective memory, the current trunk code does:
 - prevent newlines from entering filenames at the fsfs layer
 - prevent control characters from entering filenames at the repos layer
