That's an even bigger can of worms; we don't even guarantee that for
paths in the WC or in the repository, last time I looked we just blindly
used whatever form the underlying OS or apr-iconv conversion functions
supplied. And I recall problems with Mac OS X because of that.

It would indeed be nice if we guaranteed to have all paths internally
and in the repository and in hook scripts in form-C, *and* convert to
whatever the OS expects in the WC. Frankly this involves pendantic
fiddling that I for one would not be up to dealing with right now ...
