There is a replace_nonascii_chars option which will replace such characters
with question marks.  I implemented what you asked for awhile ago, but we
didn't add it as it didn't seem to have any effect on accuracy.  Database
size isn't generally a prime consideration, but if you think this particular
technique is bloating databases perhaps it bears looking at again.
