I haven't been following all the details in this thread, but isn't the whole purpose of this proposed change to accommodate code (apparently on Linux?) that is buggy in that it assumes it can use bytes for paths without knowing the encoding? It seems like from one perspective allowing bytes in paths is just helping to accommodate a certain very widespread class of bugs. -- Brendan Barnwell "Do not follow where the path may lead.
