Well, if you begin to patch some os functions, we will find much functions which don't support Unicode path.

I prefer to consider that Python 2 doesn't support Unicode filenames to avoid bugs.

If you want to support Unicode filename, we will have to modify a lot of code. What's the point since Python 3 has a very good support of Unicode? Much better than Python 2?
