Note that language-env package seems to craft up a 
.bashrc which sets the LC_ALL and LANG variable
according to the terminal type.

will only be set when terminal is kterm etc., and 

I don't know if it checks for UTF-8 capabilities and sets it,
and I don't know if it is actually the ideal way to go forward.
Tomohiro, comments ?
