For some platforms, that certainly would make sense. Of course, this is
also why I was just thinking plain ASCII, at least until somebody pointed
out that some OSes have Unicode filenames. IMO, this is really the only
use case that supports having Unicode support at all; everything we need
for HTTP itself is either ISO-Latin-1 or "byte strings".
