<p>A posix/utf8 combination that wouldn&#39;t break anything is perfect. Furthermore if Debian already did it. </p>

&gt; If we change the default, we should use a less intrusive approach<br>
&gt; and change LC_CTYPE only, which is the relevant variable that<br>
&gt; controls the character encoding functions.<br>
<br>
LC_CTYPE will affect transliteration too. Introducing a C.UTF-8 (or<br>
POSIX.UTF-8) locale like Debian did could be done without possibly<br>
subjecting users to unexpected transliteration results of e.g.<br>
Cyrillic or German umlauts.<br>
