I don't think I misunderstood anything; I said in my message that filenames are stored in
NFD, and that I don't think that's broken: "But while HFS(+) is old and is due for an overhaul,
its use of Unicode NFD isn't broken."

That's great that you're working on the issue though. While I only work in English these days
and am not affected by this problem, I used to work at a place were a lot of l10n stuff was
going on, and saw all sorts of languages and accented letters :)
