I'd prefer to see a test helper:

path = self.get_nasty_supported_filename(prefix='foo')

-> full unicode on unicode platforms
-> just ascii in unicode form on other platforms or when LC_ALL=C

This means that the test can run always, and will test to the limit of
the platform.

Separately we should have a test that tests the behaviour of filename
encoding only, e.g. of two historical revisions - and that should work
regardless of the filesystem unicode support, all it needs is a terminal
that can show it.
