There are some caveats, but it should work, and there are some fairly
similar test cases passing all compilers. To actually write the string
literal like that, the compiler must accept UTF-8 in string literals,
for example. On windows, the codepage has to be set to UTF-8. Those
are issues that affect any solution, not just filesystem v3.
