We already have similar solutions in place: convert-standard-filename
is a case in point.  The idea is to make any ugliness of non-Posix
systems be confined to a single place rather than spread over Lisp

In addition, I'm not sure such a primitive will be useless for Posix
platforms.  It could, for example, be useful for comparing decoded
file names with encoded ones.

In any case, the questions is what is the alternative to solve this
particular problem.  I don't think we should leave it unsolved.
