Some code I have wraps a SFTP library that returns paths as UTF-8 strings.
These need to be converted to the local code page before displaying to the
user. My original plan was to typedef basic_path with a traits class of my
own that I could imbue with a specific locale to do the conversion.

With FSv3 the only way to do this seems to be path::imbue() which imbue
*all* paths, globally. Or am I missing something?
