That's not true. Something is changing, arguably for the worse. Nobody
is being unsupported. Inflating the hyperbole isn't productive.

does seem relevant, and does warrant some kind of mention in the
release notes to explain the situation.

I don't recall saying that a mention in the release notes is
inappropriate or unacceptable. I don't recall objecting to the proposed
wording. The only thing I recall objecting to was the specific term
The UTF-8 issue is something I said I'd "hesitate" to recommend. That
was simply a way to raise a potential issue for consideration, as I had
not seen it discussed previously in the thread--I didn't expect it to be
taken as some sort of veto. Hesitating in order to consider doesn't
mean that the proposal is wrong or invalid, nor is it any way
pejorative. It's simply taking some time to make sure that the proposal
won't bite anyone down the road.
