To be honest, I do not know. :)  LIBC6 converts the encoding name into internal
representation, so in case of UTF-8, it will check for existance a directory
called `.UTF-8', and then `.utf8'.

As for the UTF-8, I do not know whether UTF-8 is well supported by other
programs.  So, it's too early to use it, I believe.
