    AFAIK NTFS stores in unicode-16 format...
    ... and Microsoft's interpretation is fixed I think... so no need for
    trans.tbl.

    VFAT is stored in Unicode-16 format.

    This just means there's no need to translate out of Unicode space...
    [Umm.... Linux CAN handle unicode in filenames, right? That's the
    impression I get from browsing source but I don't know...]

    G'day, eh?
