+1, please commit (# Notes would be helpful there)

To confirm; if UTF8 characters are *invalid* and won't be accepted for
path names, this feature should be set.  If the server *can* name files
in UTF8 this is the correct feature, even if the file names would appear
'odd' to the local user.  This is why the feature is correct for Unix.

Inheritance issue, perhaps?  I'll fix before rolling.
