If they were subscribed via email, we'd already have the encoded form
of their real name.

What's left are the command line and mass subscribe page (both the
text box and the file upload).  In these cases should we simply reject
addresses with non-ascii real names?  That'd mean they'd have to be
encoded prior to being subscribed.
