If we abstract the string handling nicely, it can be added on later or even
separately. (Credo: We don't have to write all of Perl 6 at once.) Yes, UTF8
is a bit of a pig to deal with, but since most of the world's data is still 
7-bit, it's almost certainly worth it.

Britain has football hooligans, Germany has neo-Nazis, and France has farmers.
