I disagree.  This particular problem points out a problem that is only
going to become more of a problem as the internationalization of
software increases.  Not everything is ASCII or English, and not
defensively programming for such cases is short-sighted.

Perhaps we are getting "burned out" by the hectic pace that Fedora tries
to keep with a six-month release cycle.  I know I sat out a lot of the
18 cycle due to a sense of being overwhelmed by the rush.
