Issue tracker cleanup: SVN-2079

For this week's issue, SVN-2079 "utf8_tests.py should be made non-
iso8859-1 specific":

According to the issue tracker, the utf8_tests.py fail on non-iso8859-
1 systems and it seems that much smarter people than myself were
stumped as to how to fix it.

* This issue was reported in 2004.
* In 2005, Ben Collins-Sussman disabled the test (mark 'Skip').
* In 2013, Bert Huijben moved to the legacy subdirectory.
* It still lives there today.
* It appears the test has not been run since 2005.

Some questions:

How important is it to run this test?

Has this test been superseded by something else over the years?

Have there been new developments in Python that would help alleviate
whatever stumped everyone in the past?

Should the test be removed?

Thanks,
Nathan
