Agreed.  Even when you know what to do, it can be very difficult to
track everything down, especially when you're trying to wedge Unicode
and i18n into an application that wasn't originally designed for it

+1 from me, although I agree with Alex's very persuasive plain text
message that it probably ought to live on the type object.
