Ah that.

Yes, concatenating two character sequences can result in technically invalid
WTF-8. But that's not an issue unique to Windows. You can do the same on any
non-Windows platform. It's still not clear how this prevents a `path` class
from storing ~WTF-8 on Windows, or exposing a char-based API that ~WTF-8
decodes when passing to Windows, and encodes on the reverse trip.
