This one is "damned you do, damned if you don't".

Strictly speaking, we should keep locale-encoded names for now on Windows, 
until we have zip_wopen. At least they're able to encode some file names, 
though not all. By switching to UTF-8 now, we force that everything needs to 
be US-ASCII only.

But let's not split hairs right now, this is the best we can do.
