That's possible, but note that it has its disadvantages: it makes the 
file name longer, and might actually _create_ file-name collisions where 
none were present before.  Maybe we should do this as an option?  Or 
maybe we should have only some characters that are translated into hex, 
while the rest are still replaced like they are today?
