[Mono-devel-list] Locale / File Name Handling in mono

Hi there,

I'm new to this list as I'm new to mono. So forgive me if my
questions are stupid or off topic.

1) Why did the call of 'setlocale(LC_ALL,"")' disappear in
   mini - in old mono there was one?

2) Why does the whole io-layer assume external file names
   being coded in UTF-8? This leads to problems, e.g., when
   using ISO-8859-1 coded filenames which contain german
   Shouldn't there be some sensible conversion between
   external and cli-internal file names, or does any of the
   cli/cls specifications prohibit this?

Thanks in advance,
