    I agree.  Richard, if you agree as well, I will make the changes in
    dired.c to decode the files we get from readdir and work on multibyte
    strings throughout.

The idea is fine in principle as long as it leads to no problems in
practice.  I'm concerned that this might lead to a substantial
slowdown.  Please check that before you install the code.
