FWIW, Linux (and to a certain extent Windows) is quite UTF-8-savvy.
The Ubuntu Terminal app does a great job of displaying native UTF8:
Latin, Cyrillic, Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, ...  No need to search for
USASCII approximations.  Even more astonishing, I can edit mixed
Latin and Cyrillic with vi, and even the case-flip ('~') command
works properly.  Works on Cygwin, also, IIRC.
