Are there any Chinese locales that use UTF-8 (i.e. Unicode mapped to 
8-bit characters) instead of these special encodings?
To be compatible with the Windows world, samba speaks Unicode "on the 
wire". For a lossless mapping of Windows filenames (just throw in some
Cyrillic or some Western European characters...) UTF-8 is pretty much 
the only option.
