I think this should be the default. The change will be in MAKEDEV. Will you submit bug for the hurd package?

Then should Unicode be default for the console? I have not printed out a complete ASCII table on a UTF-8-console without Unicode fonts (anyone knowing a tool for this?), but at a first glance output seemed to be quite usefull without ISO8859-1 encoding.

I'm not shure if this is a Debian issue. Why should Debian have a different default encoding?
