Thanks, I'll review that section later.
Still, I don't think we should really encourage the use of UTF-8 in
msgid:s yet. Very few English messages should need anything besides what
ASCII provides, and using UTF-8 in msgids require the newest versions of
intltool and GNU gettext, and break translations on all other platforms.
And I don't know one single stable distribution version that ships with
such a new intltool/GNU gettext combo yet. Thus, I don't think it's
worth it yet.
