store.encodefilename() has been encoding \x00 to "~00" for quite a while
now (even predates fncache repo layout).

I guess the inverse store.decodefilename() will happily decode "~00" to
\0x00 as well.

Both should perhaps raise an error instead. In particular, trying to
decode "~00" should raise an error.
