[Vm-dev] UTF-8 status of VMs?

Folks -

Just a quick check on the status of UTF-8 support in the VMs. Do we by 
now have agreement that all strings coming into the VM and out of the VM 
should be in UTF-8 by default? Including, but not limited to file and 
directory names, clipboard contents, etc?

I'd really like to simplify some of the code to not have to deal with 
all of these conversions and simply assume that on any path into the VM 
we perform a UTF-8 conversion and get over with it.
