On the one hand, it's in there for quite some time, so it could be
consider legacy.

But it never hurt me and since all my own infrastructure is UTF-8
based, I don't mind enforcing it in case I encounter a legacy
installation or such. So I don't bother to remove it nor to think
about if I still need it. :-)
