filesystem::path seems very useful, but I don't like the dependency
(Interprocess is a header only lib) and I find path interface suboptimal.

There is an open bug for wide-string/unicode support for Interprocess,
so I'll need to find time (too much time I'm afraid) to study the issue
in detail.

By the way, I don't find the restriction of using plain ASCII characters
for named objects. I think mutex, shm semaphore names don't badly need
encoding support. file_mapping, on the other hand needs at least wide
strings, at least in windows.
