If we add tests for this feature (and I agree it's desirable), we
should generate the files with non-ASCII names for those tests as part
of the test script, not having them ready in the repository and the
tarball.  That's because unpacking a tarball with non-ASCII characters
and/or having them in Git will immediately cause problems on Windows,
where the unpacking tools and at least some versions of Git for
Windows cannot cope with arbitrary non-ASCII file names.  The Texinfo
project had quite a few similar problems, and ended up generating the
files as part of running the test suite as the only viable solution.
