File a bug then, please; perhaps suggest removing the package if not
UTFable.

Fedora moved to UTF-8 a while back, which was a large step forward for
i18n; some (legacy) packages don't understand UTF-8 fully (yet?), but for a
new package it is not excusable, IHVHO.

And I was looking at this as a tiny editor that could be included in
e.g. rescue images. Oh, well.
