Comment #2 on issue 3670 by scmtools repository unique constraint path:local prevents using mysql 5.5 with wide charsets

I don't think we can support utf32 or utf8mb4. Is there a reason plain ol' utf8 can't be used?

Well in prevents using anything outside of the BMP. Things like emoji, mathematical symbols, musical symbols live on the SMP. Using utf8, it's impossible to store these characters in review requests, reviews, comments, etc.

Since django doesn't let you be choosy about these things, the only way to enable them anywhere by default is to enable them everywhere by default.

I suppose I can be pickier about which tables and columns we convert -- it might be unlikely that the path will contain these characters.

Maybe I should really just get around to looking into converting our db to postgres...
