The above is an OS's point of view.  Users may not consider
that changing filename encoding is a special case of
rename-file.  Even for you, the explanation was necessary.

So, I wanted to hear other people's opinions about which is
better; enhancing the existing rename-file directly (perhaps
by making use of the prefix argument), or making a new
command recode-file-name.
