I only partially agree that this is somebody else's problem:
On Unix, it is always considered application responsibility
to interpret file names as characters if they need to -
hence the lack of a system-provided encoding strategy. So it
is the problem of Python or the Python application, and I
think we should try to shield the application from these
issues as good as we can.

Therefore, I'm in favour of jvr's latest proposal (use byte
strings as the last resort), hoping that the error case will
be unfrequent.
