Perhaps, but even systems which have objects get burned. As noted earlier, the Python developers have had a hard time.... they've switched to Unicode as their main text representation, but Unix filenames aren't text... they are essentially binary blobs! If filenames were always UTF-8, there'd be no problems. Similarly, perl programs get trashed if filenames begin with <.
