I think the problem is that they can't or won't asciify the filenames.
Just how many filenames are involved? There's always Option B, which is to quietly rewrite all requests to the form they "should" have. Any incoming request that isn't valid utf-8-- either leading \x as in \xc3\xb2, or one-byte characters in the 80-FF range --gets retro-converted to utf-8. This can't happen in the config file, of course, but it should only be a few lines of php.
And then there's Option C, which is to say ### it and rename everything until such a time as the server catches up. I really don't see the need for image files to have non-ascii names. Pages maybe, but that doesn't seem to be the situation.
