Thanks! Of course, the original idea is about 10 years old,
and was yours, Francois!

In the end, it turned out to be relatively easy. Nobody asked
questions anymore in the style of "any chance this (Unicode stuff)
might actually work" or "do you think anybody actually needs this
(Unicode stuff)". I guess IDN and some other things paved the way.

Now it's on to implementations and testing.

Regards,    Martin.
