For that, you can thank Masahiro Chiba, that part was his patch :)

Hmm, I hadn't thought of the case where you'd want keys as uft8, but  
that's perfectly valid.

I'd certainly take a patch to do that, but I'm afraid my enthusiasm  
has vanished at the moment :)

I'd probably agree with you, at least as a configurable parameter -  
some of the things I'm doing now are really horribly breaking  
abstraction to get things done..

Branch on 5.80 welcome, although we wouldn't want to change behavior  
by default (at least any time soon, or only for new apps)..
