On fixing that. 76759c7 describes the change as:

    The argv[] conversion allows to use the TAB filename completion done
    by the shell on command line.  It tolerates other tools which use
    readdir() to feed decomposed file names into git.

How come git's internal conversion helps TAB filename completion,
which is done before git is executed? If it's the pathname output from
git that helps tab completion, then perhaps we should convert at
output time rather than input, by piping all the output through a
converter when we know the output is textual. That keeps all paths in
the same encoding internally (I hope).

Just two cents. And I'm not against i18n.pathencoding or anything.
