For your information, just a small note here (... and I do the same as
you do, by the way, for exactly the same reasons): there is an attempt in
Debian to ``introduce a C.UTF-8 locale, as some other OSes did, which is

where it uses UTF-8 instead of a 7/8-bit character set or encoding'' --
quoting from <http://bugs.debian.org/522776>.
