Not sure if I fully understand the question.

Mac OS will always use UTF-8, and we can choose between
precomposesd and decomposed.

Windows ("Git for Windows" == msysgit) uses UTF-8 (precomposed)
Git under cygwin 1.7 uses UTF-8, precomposed.
Git under cygwin 1.5 or git compiled under mingw does not use
UTF-8, but a Windows code page"

Linux may use UTF-8 or ISO-8859 or whatever you configure.

This change affects only Mac OS, 
(should this be stated better in the commit MSG?)

And if somebody wants to change a repo between Linux, Windows
and/or Mac OS, everybody should use UTF-8 (precomposed) for filenames,
directories and branches.
(or stick to ASCII)
Does this answer the question?
