The following test fails both on 5.10.1 and blead (per chip on #p5p).

The bareword on the left side of fat comma (=>) always gets utf8 flag
set, even if the characters only consist of ascii chars. See
http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=668987 for more details.

use strict;
use utf8;
use Test::More tests => 2;

my %foo = (a => 'b', 'c' => 'd');

for my $key (keys %foo) {
    ok !utf8::is_utf8($key), "'$key' shouldn't have utf8 flag";
}
