There are cases where we actually wanna strip the modifier. The @euro
modifier was a quick hack to get around the fact that most Unices would
assume pre-Euro currencies and character-set for default locales. Since
Unicode has all the glyphs, we don't need it for the UTF-8 variant.

Your comment brings a good point:  always preserving the modifier,
unless it is an exact match for @euro, might be a better strategy.
