Perhaps on Posix systems, but not elsewhere.  And if we make the
change, we should make sure building Emacs in a non-ASCII directory
still works.

Btw, why does the default matter so much?  Once Emacs starts up
default-file-name-coding-system on GNU/Linux is set to UTF-8, if the
locale says so.  Is this just an aesthetic issue?
