I think you could write a whole section just on them and all the issues
on various platforms. But having never dealt with a system with
multiple languages / encodings I'm not sure I really understand the
issues. You know, like:
Encoding / character sets gotchas / recommendations:
Full text indexing
The main thing I wonder about is does UTF-8 handle all characters
anybody would want to use. I've been told it doesn't for Asian
languages, in which case I don't see how this is a solvable problem
I've collected quite a few comments from other people, so I'll post a
slightly revised patch later.
