I guess we need another format specifier than "s" here. "s" does the 
conversion to standard-python-utf8 for wide strings, and we'd need another 
format for conversion to current-local-os-convention-8-bit-encoding-of-unicode-

I assume that that would also come in handy for MacOS, where we'll have the 
same problem (filenames are in Apple's proprietary 8bit encoding).
