Ah, to boldly go there RedHat has gone before.
Nah, don't think so, yet.
There has been lots of UTF-8 glibc fixes the last year, and I suspect
more are to come as RedHat and others keep finding bugs. And I know
from experience that using UTF-8 all over give compatibility problems.
Did you ever try to log into a Solaris box from a RedHat 9 box using
UTF-8? I did. All 8bit chars were messed up.
