UTF-8 is slated to become an official part of 0.43 vanilla.

Its unfortunately that you have merged DesireData and gridflow into  
one project.  I think it will cause lots of problems having gridflow  
modify Pd itself.  If there is one thing we have learned in the  
history of Pd, its that big libraries that are collections of  
everything are problematic.
