I don't know how much that matters -- down the road libxml2 uses the C API

is that the C file apis would fail anywyas.  The only place that would
benefit from that are custum i/o handlers that may properly use UTF-8
encoded paths.

  Yeah, for paths it's an Operating System only issue. If the
C libraries APIs were (const char * + encoding) then libxml2
would have to handle encoding at those level, but as it is
filepaths don't have an encoding, it's just a zero terminated
array of bytes and we can't do anything at that level IMHO.
