  If we start filtering according to charsets (which I'm not really
sure will provide any effectiveness against spam), I will oppose any
scheme that filters out Unicode messages.  It's hard enough getting
people to switch to UTF-8, there's no need to provide them with an
excuse to stay with their own charsets.
