<ironic>Well... the substitution operator and string concatenation still
produce garbage with utf8-strings (checked 7 days ago, as activestate
still filters connections using path-mtu-recovery, making updates somehwat
painful), but I admit that this clearly aren't any bugs. I guess people
are simply not supposed to use these with utf-8. Just like the whole of
perl, I guess.</>

I also guess the more people insist on utf8 working, the more I have to
clarify this issue :(
