I agree.

I have had lot problems with UTF-8. I think, main point which made things
simpler for me:

Perl uses internally _unicode_ strings. So everything coming in or going
out needs decoding or encoding. Without explicitly doing so, all strings
are treated as being ASCII/Latin1 encoded.

For me main problem is: in core is nothing to turn every input/output
automatically convert from/to utf-8. Every user has to write pretty boring
boilerplate to cover all possibilities. I use utf8::all for this, but some
are criticizing it.

Kõike hääd,
