I've just created a bug, 26081, to track this issue.
(thats why i asked btw, to see how important it was and whether it
required a bumping of the priority on the issue).

Well, one thing to note is that only Emacs 21.1 or newer supports utf-8
(and XEmacs doesn't at all, AFAIK); that means that all the Emacs-based
mail clients (e.g Gnus, VM, Wanderlust, SEMI, Mew) won't support it
unless they're running on a new enough version of GNU Emacs.
Given that some of those (like Wanderlust) seem to be popular, and also
seem to have a mostly Japanese-only audience, I suspect there are a fair
number of Japanese users of GNU/Linux and Unix for whom utf-8 isn't
I mention this because I notice Kenn is using Mew (an Emacs-based mail
client) on Emacs 20.7.
Thanks Colin, that's exactly right.
Actually, a number(most)of Unix/Linux users use Emacs-based mail clients
