It's 2018 and UTF-8 is the de-facto standard character set for the
shell. IMO, supporting it should no longer be considered optional.

Busybox ash mostly tracks dash in applying patches and such, but it does
a good job of supporting UTF-8. The licenses are bidirectionally
compatible. Perhaps UTF-8 support could be ported over in the other
direction? Maybe Denys Vlanesko could assist.
