It can? This is with LC_CTYPE set correctly? How does the problems
We do use crazy glyphs in the default bundle items.

hmm… I do not know what the de facto encoding for Linux file systems
are. I could imagine that there is still a lot of stuff stuck with
latin-1 or just “8 bit clean, but let’s show it as ASCII.”

I actually did consider to do ASCII transliteration, because of all
those who do a svn checkout w/o reading all the steps first ;) but
then I also think that it’s a shame to cater to the common
denominator, when Apple actually made our file system work with all
unicode code points!

I could maybe do it as a hidden option -- no sane Mac system should
give a problem with this.
