You are talking about filenames, I am pretty sure the original question was
about what is in the files.

For pkgsrc filenames I agree - ascii should be enough. For content, I don't
see why we would support anything but UTF8 (and that only in certain fields,
so the original question IMHO was a very interesting one).
