I find only 18 names in people.names containing non-ASCII letters,
so /org/www.debian.org/cron/people_scripts/people.pl could contain
some extra elsif in its canonical_names function to replace
non-ASCII letters by HTML entities.  Most names seem to be ISO-8859-1
When done, this script could also skip maintainers with non-ASCII
letters which are not processed in order to prevent future trouble.
