Odd. Checking the latest OLPC image I have access to (etoys2.3-1867)
there is nothing I can see that would deal properly in the image with
non-ascii file names on Unix. LanguageEnvironment still returns "self
currentPlatform class fileNameConverterClass" which won't use an UTF-8
converter anywhere. So unless I'm missing something it probably
shouldn't work on OLPC. Maybe try it with some "real" UTF-32 names?
