The UTF8 problem is issue #2332. I don't think adding this option is a
good idea, since it only solves part of the problem. We also blindly put
UTF8 when you use the Id keyword (pathnames) and usernames. Also, people
have asked for more options regarding the format of keywords, so if/when
we do something about this, it needs to be more flexible.

Thanks for the patch, anyway,
