Why not use convmv to convert some files *from* utf8 to some other
charset first?  For example,

$ touch /tmp/æ-convmv-test
$ convmv --notest -f utf8 -t iso8859-1 /tmp/æ-convmv-test 
Your Perl version has fleas #37757 #49830 
mv "/tmp/æ-convmv-test" "/tmp/�-convmv-test"
Ready!

To convert it back again:

$ convmv --notest -t utf8 -f iso8859-1 /tmp/*-convmv-test 
Your Perl version has fleas #37757 #49830 
mv "/tmp/�-convmv-test" "/tmp/æ-convmv-test"
Ready!
