What we have to consider:
- Userland (POSIX locale) and kernel (locale-like? or UTF8?)
(/<Russion dirname>/<Japanese dirname>/<German filename>,
but this could not be accessible from processes with
LC_ALL=de_DE.ISO8859-15 for example)
- Multiple encoding in a single volume
(which we allow currently; suppose /home for Russians
and Japanese, and /home on a UFS)
- Msdosfs, shortnames in legacy encoding and longnames in UCS2
- something else?
Partly discussed in http://www.haun.org/ml/b-l-j/a/500/572.html
(in Japanese, sorry).
Anyway, I do not think all of the above can be solved in a
single solution:), but it is worth discuss before adding a
mount option to specify encoding.
