    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.
