Lightbulb Add an option to not convert filename to ASCII while uploading to device


I had raised the following issue on launchpad

The filename is explicitly set to ASCII while uploading to device.
Please, add a capability to turn off this conversion as all devices can
be UTF-8 complaint and this can be much more convinient to have file
structure defined in UTF-8 (national characters).

The functionality I am asking for is already implemented for `Save to
disk` function by turning off:

Preferences->Saving Books To Disk->Convert non-English characters to
English equivalents.

Please, do the same option for `Sending books to devices`

Kovid Goyal replied that that won't be fixed (no reason had been provided), but I still would like to make a patch locally.

Here I'm asking the community - can you see any hidden caveats of this solution?
