Hi Adam,

this is a great goal.  Here are two comments.

There is a related issue opened on the Policy (<http://bugs.debian.org/701081>),
where we propose the following:

 - Require UTF-8 for the names of all files and directories installed by binary packages.
 - Recommend ASCII when possible.
 - Require ASCII for files in /bin, /sbin, /usr/bin, /usr/sbin and /usr/games.

About display by GUIs, I think that we should have a system to install all the
fonts necessary to display languages that we support at the installation.

Have a nice Debconf !
