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.

This is something of an xfs special in this case, the hash algorithm used in xfs
directories does math on the names, and in removing the -funsigned-char from
the Makefiles, I forgot about this.
