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.
