IMHO, it's better not to save in utf8, otherwise, we would have to deal 
with multibyte chars in fixed width text log files.

The idea of the utf8 option would be nice, but liblogfile would have
to be fixed then.

For now, representation in one byte locale makes things simpler.
We'll see when J's and B's will ask for xlog support of Kanji et al.
