I thought someone said in a previous message that the problem was not that
8 bit was being done, but that it was being done incorrectly. Since the
use of 8 bit seems to be all right in most circumstances, and essential
in others, doesn't it make sense to make 8 bit the default as long as
there's a way to override that?
