Personally I consider the current situation where you get wrong str worse than getting correct unicode. In the latter case `unicode(arg, sys.getfilesystemencoding())` would even work the same way both in CPython and Jython (although the fact that `unicode(x, None)` works on Jython at all is inconsistent with CPython). 

Now that I know the workaround this isn't such a big problem anyway. Perhaps the best idea would be documenting this behavior somewhere.
