UTF-8 is definitely useful, no one is arguing that.  The problem is  
the way you are shipping it.  A much more useful way IMHO is to make  
it a separate library so that people who need it can load it, and  
those who don't need it don't even have to think about it.  The way  
this is currently set up, people who don't want it at all have to  
think about it.

This is one thing I have learned in the years of doing Pd-extended.   
And that's why I'm focusing now on making each library as standalone  
as possible, and make it possible for people to install libraries.
