Characters 128-159 are treated as illegal (as if binary 0-31), so that
the iso-8859-* characters won't cause terminal problems if
displayed on 7bit terminal. Characters 160+ are okay.
Anyway, the proper answer is: do not add special kludge to fmt(1),
use proper locales :) Working ones are beeing worked on and should
appear on mainline after 1.5 release.
