Fine with me.  I am a bit afraid that this kind of change is a bit
fragile and/or dependent on build environments, and once we promise this
in Changes, we may be held to that promise, and personally I am not
involved with Windows to any degree where I could contribute to keeping
that promise.  And I am a defensive file namer myself from times
predating not just UTF-8 but also Latin-1.

But that is more an explanation about why I am thinking up excuses about
this not being put in Changes rather than an explanation about why this
should not be in Changes.  So basically, after reconsideration I think
you are right: that would make a good point for Changes.
