But that doesn't mean that we couldn't supply a configuration
based approach for specifying the encoding to use, for those
users who'd really want that. As long as any such feature leaves
the existing default behaviour alone, I don't see an issue.
Now, I still wonder why anyone would want to mix and match encodings
on their filesystems. But this isn't the first time this issue has
been brought up, so it seems to be important to some of our users.
