Topic: Unicode filenames with PDFlib

I've been trying to create a file with a unicode character in the name without success (see code snippet below). FWICT, the default ASFileSys is "DOS", so I'm not too surprised it doesn't create a unicode filename for me.
Is there another filesystem type I can use? The docs are rather terse on the subject. Do I need to create a filesystem plugin that can handle unicode?

ASFile pFile;
ASText fileName = ASTextFromUnicode( L"/C/hello未.ps", kUTF16HostEndian);
ASPathName path = ASFileSysCreatePathName(NULL,ASAtomFromString("DIPathWithASText"),fileName,NULL);
wchar_t *txt = (wchar_t *)ASTextGetUnicode(fileName);
MessageBoxW(0, txt, txt, MB_OK);
ASFileSysOpenFile (NULL, path, ASFILE_WRITE | ASFILE_CREATE, &pFile);


ASFileSys myfs = ASGetDefaultFileSys();
const char *name = ASAtomGetString(myfs->getFileSysName()); // result is "DOS"
