Bug#292330: use UTF-8 by default

I suggest a strategy of having locale.config (the script that prompts
you to generate locales at install time) automatically select any
locale which matches s/\..*/.UTF-8/ for the locales the user has

Of course, some users may be annoyed by the additional disk space
(what, another megabyte or so in /usr/lib/locale/locale-archive?) and
the additional CPU usage at install/upgrade time.
