But that's exactly what Georgy is complaining about. No amount of
default locale tricks will help you if some of your files are in Spanish
and others are in Hebrew. If there was a way to get the file names in
UTF-8, you could use rsync still, but it seems that there is no way to
do it.

Pitty, really.
