Try it, though. I'm Brazilian and I use some UTF-8 multibyte
characters (a small subset of it comparing with the Cyrillic alphabet,
which I presume you use) and I have no problems with files named with
UTF-8 characters.

When I first tried ZSH, I ditched it because of it, but it's been a
long time since UTF-8 characters are working out of the box.
