Thanks, Ville.

That was a strawman argument to show that the barrier to the feature can be
unreasonably high, thus making it as good as useless. That is what I'd like to

Not only should there be an easy way to enable the UTF-8 support, it should be
enabled by something in the source file itself, not a external to it.
