Before dealing with this, I'm now interested in how to deal with
bigger than 3 byte characters like UTF-8. (your patch pushed me :)
I now give these file systems a capacity to acquire UTF-8.
(I mean I extended a character buffer size from 2 bytes to 4 bytes).


Though I think UTF-8 converter needs arguing how it be,
UTF-8 is available with cd9660, msdosfs and ntfs with this
quick hacked coverter.


Any comments?

Can anybody please take a look at conf/57277 and bin/57462?
