I'm curious if the extended characters over 127 from the Latin-1
character set require support at the filesystem level? I imagine that
some of the wide character requirements of Japanese kanji would make it
rather "interesting" if the filesystem has to actually deal with it. I'm
beginning to discover the pain of trying to internationalize software on
X11, and curious about how far character sets actually "invade" the
system.
