I get the impression that someone is strongly against changing the
current ugly behaviour, and wants to ship Sarge with such a broken
impression. I always read "different opinions", "no idea to apply" and
similar things, but never a *reason*(1). I get the impression, it is
along the lines "If you don't use unicode, then you are /&/()$§&" or maybe
some german related resistance? I don't know.



(1) If there are technical reasons, they can be (usually) solved. If
    there are "political" reasons, then they should be stated as such
    and discussed. If you don't have time, then maybe someone with
    enough knowledge (Denis?) can prepare a NMU for you.
