Any more votes for ">" instead of ":"?

How to make nano check whether it's running in a multibyte
locale?  Just have it look at the last four chars of LC_MESSAGES,
to see whether it's "utf8"?

Something slightly related: how about adding something like
  color ,red " +        +"
to several nanorc files, to highlight spaces before tabs?  The
tabs themselves get highlighted too, which is not so good,
but it's better than not to be warned at all.
