Recent "Daily Python-URL" has link to small article "Unicode strings to
ASCII ...nicely" (http://www.peterbe.com/plog/unicode-to-ascii). This
article show the example how to convert unicode string to almost
equivalent ascii-string with some loss of data. I think it's may be
interested for creating file-id for non-ascii filenames.
Unfortunately it's works only for latin-based alphabets (latin-1
encoding) but anyway it's good approach, IMO.
