There are no short term plans to change character sets, but if you were
to publish a bazaar branch with your changes (on launchpad or elsewhere)
and post a note about it to the mailman-developers at python.org list so
that the possible implications such as for German speaking Swiss users
could be discussed, we could easily pick your changes up.

Longer term, Mailman is moving to full unicode internally and utf-8
