That's relieving. It sure is an annoyance for anyone who's not on
latin-1. It's an outright invalid character and as you've seen it's
not easy to even send a patch changing it. IMHO, if it were something
which couldn't be avoided at all, encoding it using utf-8 would be
much more appropriate.

Thanks.
