I would like to keep the functionality that the user can specify
the character set that his/her terminal can display.  Just like
with other programs, e.g. vi, this is done with LANG or LC_CTYPE.

Verifying the locale setting of the user does not prevent from
adding protocol level support for character sets in the future,
if such protocol extension is ever added.
