MacOS X does decompose filenames, but it does not use standard Unicode normalization (because it was
designed before Unicode's normalization was finalized.) I suggest you search the mailing list
archive for this list for more details. You probably need to use a MacOS system function.
ICU has options for normalization (some defined with internal constants only) which may or may not
match, or get close to, MacOS filename normalization: http://oss.software.ibm.com/cgi-bin/icu/nbrowser
