filesystem::path will handle character code conversion. Regardless of
the platform, you call path::append(). Or path::concat(), if you want
dumb concatenation. The question is only what and how exactly do you
want to append and what do you expect to get in the end.

I didn't read Boost.URL docs, but it seems strange to me that operations
are defined without an expected outcome. I mean, you can define loose
concepts such as MutableString, but I don't find it helpful as I still
can't tell what the operations on its models are doing.
