Ah, I misread the original question.  I thought he was referring to Unicode
filenames.  Yes, everything you read using Python 2.x will essentially be
raw bytes.  You should thus have no problems reading or writing them.  It
would only be a problem if your "cooked" strings were converted to Unicode
objects.  In that case you'd need to tell Python how to encode them as bytes
for writing on-disk.
