This must be some kind of misunderstanding: I was trying to help you,
not mock your report in any way.

So please do tell what is the value of `default-file-name-coding-system'
and please do try setting `file-name-coding-system' to `utf-8'.  It
might get your problem solved.

Again a misunderstanding, I hope.  I was trying to point to a possible
way of designing such a feature, not tell that I think the issue
should be dismissed.

If my response doesn't help you, simply forget I ever spoke.
