But shouldn't that be done temporarily by default when processing the
command line?  Or alternatively, shouldn't Guile just pass the command
line byte-transparently to the file open calls?

It seems strange that Guile is unable to just pass what it received to
the file open call: if it is in 8bit-mode, this should work, and if it
is in UTF-8 mode (and the error messages suggest that it is), this
should work as well.
