The latter looks like a bit of an odd choice to me, as I always took
the locale to be describing the character set the OS is using. So
it's telling me what fiilenames are represented in, but says nothing
about their contents encoding. But the laternative is to assume UTF-8
everywhere I guess, which I can see would break an awful lot of things,
which being arguably no more "correct".
