Re: IDN hostname resolution in NetBSD

And, while I'm asking the question, is there any known issues/

Following up on this late part of the question, it looks like UTF-8
is bad for local hostnames. Many things get confused, not the least
of which is wsconsole. But sshd seems to generate keys without
understanding it as UTF-8, and postfix harfs, etc etc.
Setting it to a latin1 hostname, including an ö, seems to almost
work, or at least show the right thing on boot, but postfix still
harfs. Looks like postfix can't handle anything other than 7-bit
ascii in it's retrieved hostname.
And, when using latin1, zsh (4.3.10, with a UTF-8 $LANG) screws up
pretty badly too, as one might expect.
So, I think this may be "a bad idea". :-(
