Sure. But this is what Samba or rather netatalk should take into account
for interoperability issues when both are running on the same box and
operating with different clients (CIFS and AFP respectively). As I
said before, we have patches for Netatalk to support Samba-like reencoding
scheme which works well with UTF-8 on disk for Japanese cases. My
understanding is that Netatalk developers keep working on more complete
Samba/Netatalk integration in this area but it is far from releasable
