Doesn't this relate to the earlier discussion of whether to re-encode
filenames and paths?

What's going to happen if I have filenames which aren't valid encoded
strings in the server encoding -- say UTF8 filenames but I'm using
latin1 in the server or vice versa. Will my CREATE FUNCTION command
end up storing an invalid encoded string? Or re-encode the filename
and then fail to find the file?
