Except that LANG isn't *the* native encoding. It is at least debatable
whether it should be used to interpret file system name strings.
(And it's rather hacked, since it is 'LANGuage' and not encoding, even
though there are locales like en_us.utf8.)

In my opinion it would be saner nowadays to assume file names to
be in utf8 and warn if they are not, and use the setting in LANG
for console I/O only.
