Feature request: multibyte user-full-name

User-agent: Wanderlust/2.12.2 (99 Luftballons) SEMI/1.14.6 (Maruoka) FLIM/1.14.7 (Sanjō) APEL/10.6 MULE XEmacs/21.4 (patch 17) (Jumbo Shrimp) (powerpc-apple-darwin7.8.0)


user-full-name might contain non-ASCII characters. For example,
pw_gecos is encoded in UTF-8 on Darwin.

No technical problems exist except in which coding system should Emacs
decode the username. We have three options:

1. Introduce something like directory-system-coding-system and guess
it in set-locale-environment.

2. Apply file-name-coding-system and pray that it works.

3. Hardcode for each platform.
