Some very rare cases - yes may be.
Does the Wine implementation deliver UNICODE file names anyhow?
UNICODE filenames are mostly only present when using a NTFS drive.

Well, changing Wine's winefile to UNICODE is not as easy as in ReactOS:

- First the problem of TEXT() string constants. They would have to
converted to the (IMHO) ugly "WCHAR str = {...}" constants.

- Winefile also reads Unix directories using readdir().
Is there a UNICODE version of this function, or would you have to
use some UTF-8 conversion?

OK, this little problems can all be solved, if you want to switch to a
UNICODE winefile.
