Noisy minority fallacy. I for one don't think it really matters and if
anything has been an excellent exercise of our internationalization
capability. Look what it has done, it's tested the data flow from the
developers text editor, through CVS, through our build system, our
reporting tools, the mailing list, everyone's mail clients, RPM, yum,
PackageKit...

Testing IS a sport. Un-displayable characters means we should examine
our font support, not ban unicode.
