I use  Emacs 24.2.1 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 3.6.4.
GUI is gnome, version 3.6.2.

There is apparently a way, but it does not seem trivial, and surely
not "magical",
if I understand the link I found lately night:
Apparently this was developed by a Japanese:

Yes, it works.
In fact, I wonder if I could find a workaround, as my only issue (I
think) is due
to a HFS+ file-system backup mounted on my Linux box (CIFS).
Such as  using a different FS on the MacOS box (FAT, UFS), or having some
options at CIFS level when I could mount NFD encoded filesystems via CIFS.
