With some multibyte character sets, it may be possible that '/' is one
byte of a multibyte sequence. From a Unix perspective, I presume that
it is always treated a path separator and never treated as a multibyte
combination filename character.
FWIW -- I know the whole world isn't Unicode, but that will not happen with any valid Unicode encoding.
