I think changing to %s rather than %r is definitely right.

And I think encoding just the filename, rather than the whole stream, is 
also probably right, as it will give better results if we don't know the 
encoding of the contents of the file.

My only query is whether we should be hardcoding utf-8 here.  Shouldn't 
we be putting the filenames into the user's encoding?
