Keeping the filnames readable is a nice goal. But, as you say, the
main problem is to decide just _what_ characters to encode.  I thought
that the URL method would specify that list of characters.  Is that
not the case?  Once we have that list, we can of course use a more
pretty encoding than hex numbers.
