Well, the Unicode HOWTO states:

When opening a file for reading or writing, you can usually just provide the Unicode string as the filename, and it will be automatically converted to the right encoding for you

This is really an unexpected behavior which could be easily missed by a test case so I would really vote for making this clear in the documentation.
