Quick-converting the encoding of filenames

From juliano.info

Sometimes, people send me files (usually packaged in some container that is not Unicode-aware) with names in character encodings that differ from my system configuration, and I end up with broken filenames in my filesystem.

Some time ago I wrote a script, i18n-rename, to quickly convert the character encoding of a set of filenames. Since this may be useful for someone else, I'm releasing it to the public.
