You are right here. Perl works just right with all string in
locale encoding. Touching Locale::gettext is not a good idea.

May I interrupt? If I understood correctly, Locale::gettext does
not mark the string as UTF-8 for the perl internals, even if you
request UTF-8 encoding from gettext, right?

In that case, that's definitely a bug. I don't think it's a good
idea to have Locale::gettext *force* UTF-8, but when the wrapper
is told to return strings encoded that way, it should certainly
set the corresponding flag on the string so things will Just Work
in Perl.
