Yes, it is a kernel feature, sort of. I think Linux always let you use
whatever charset you pleased, but sometime in 2.1 ISO 8859-15 support
was added for FAT filesystems (and Joliet). So the added support is only
relevent for people using Microsoft filesystems.

(I think; haven't checked just when it was added.)

- Unix: You think it won't work, but if you find the right wizard, he can
make it work.
- Macintosh: You think it will work, but it won't.
- PC/Windows: You think it won't work, and it won't.
