Since as Kenichi says, usage of such characters basically depends on
people and I do not have the statistical information, I think the
usage is relatively rare because we have lots of filenames containing
ASCII only and if we use Japanese filename, it is often consist of
KANJI, HIRAGANA and KATAKANA characters only. Using fullwidth Cyllic,
Greece is quite rare. Using fullwidth Alphabet, Roman numerals are
also rare.
