What are you trying to fix ? If someone has "unix charset != utf8"
then they have to make sure everything that comes in will map
to their charset. It's that simple.

How does your proposed patch fix that issue ? I can't see that
it's doing that, you're just moving the boundaries of the
problem, the problem still exists. And our boundaries at
the moment are in a good place, I *really* don't want to
move them as it will confuse the code more than it improves

In short I think you're wasting your time here, and I'd
rather you fix real rather than imagined bugs :-).
