is that this is no longer a problem. That is, if you see this problem
now, it's because you're pulling filenames off of a file system from
an old version of Windows. There hasn't been a Windows OS one in the
last few years that suffers from this.

Linux seems to suffer from it as well:

Can a file path be invalid UTF-8?<><>

And what‘s the benefit of insisting to be able to convert everything to UTF-32? It takes time, makes the parser less flexible, most matching is ASCII, and if you want to match Unicode, you have the extra step of normalization anyway. But I guess I won‘t convince you…
