Actually, I managed to make even the "slow" case not so bad,
be using the property that when parsing pathnames (where we
only care about the characters '.', '\\' and '/' that the '\\'
character is the only one that can occur as the second part
of a mb-encoded string).

I'm testing the code to make sure I have the correct semantics
with sb-encoding right now, I'd appreciate some help once
I've checked it in to make sure it works with the problematic
mb encodings.
