Sorry, by "unsupported" I meant he previously reasonable German
quotation marks have been turned into ones that no German speaker
thinks are acceptable.

Ok, so how about we articulate problems might occur?  Perhaps we
should have a file about it, b/c we shouldn't put more than a single
paragraph in the release notes in my opinion.

Perhaps you could write down some of the more frequent problems that
users with UTF-8 might expect to see (especially any actual bugs you
know of; you suggested there were some but I may have misunderstood),
and this could be included.
