I will add my much less venerated name to the list of
people who think ascii is the sane default in any

I think this whole debate could be put to rest by
agreeing to err on the side of ascii in 3.0 beta, and
if in real world experience, that turns out to be the
wrong decision, simply fix it in 3.0 production, 3.1,
or 3.2.

I like incrementism, despite the lofty agenda of 3.0.
