Apparently regarding everything ISO-8859-1 is not correct:-)
Probably we need to make quote_indet() a little bit smarter so that it
should quote input text only when it includes ASCII capital letters
and any other non delimter-appropreate letters except 8 bit
BTW, currently tab completion is not working for multibyte
encoding(including UTF-8, I guess) because it's broken in that it's
not multibyte ware.
I think we need to fix that as well.
