It's not safe as a system default, yes. But we're not talking about making the system default a UTF-8 locale. We're talking about providing one for those packages which need it. Such package should know what they are doing already, and should probably actually prefer to get such error properly. > But a good release goal for squeeze+1. I wasn't planning to push it for Squeeze actually, unless glibc people think it's ok to add it.
