As we do this only when core.precomposeunicode is set, projects that
use pathnames encoded not in UTF-8 (e.g. 8859-1, EUC, etc.) will not
be affected by getting their path mangled, as long as we won't flip
the default to true (which I am not suggesting to do, by the way).

I think this may be the right approach, especially if you are going
to do this only when core.precomposeunicode is set.
the reasoning behind "we would have to be careful not to write"
part, is unclear to me, though. Don't decomposing filesystems
perform the manglig from the precomposed form without even being
asked to do so, just like a case insensitive filesystem will
overwrite an existing "makefile" on a request to write to
