=   
=   - English-speaking people, who are fine with US-ASCII,
=   - European-languages-speaking people, who are quite happy with 8bits ISO-8859-* and locales,
=   - Asian-languages-speaking people, who need Unicode (and therefore multibyte).

needs to use far-east languages often with their computers, even
