It might be important for people who build Emacs on non-English
language systems.

It definitely happens when building.  I didn't look deep enough to see
what happens once Emacs is installed.  The code is definitely wrong.

It might be a natural thing in some quarters.  E.g., Emacs sources
might be a subdirectory of some parent directory with a non-ASCII name
where many other packages are built.

Anyway, if the project thinks it's not important enough, I have better
things to do.
