Subject: [boost] [filesystem] Mac OS default codecvt facet
From: Beman Dawes (bdawes_at_[hidden])

On Mac OS, Boost.Filesystem currently uses std::locale() as the
default, since Apple doesn't see fit to support std::locale("").
There has been a request (ticket #3928) to change the codecvt facet to
UTF-8 for the Boost.Filesystem default on Mac OS. This would at least
potentially be a breaking change, so I wanted to ask other's opinions
before making it.
* Is UTF-8 OK with Mac OS users as the Boost.Filesystem default?
* Would Linux users also prefer UTF-8 as the Boost.Filesystem default?
