I would agree with this. I don't see any reason to support other encodings
and we have all seen masses of corruption caused by systems that were badly
written in this respect. In other projects I'm in/run we limit encoding to
If I understand the rest it's that we shouldn't output BibTeX escaped
characters (e.g. with backslashes). Again I would agree (I have written
libraries to do this in the past and hated it). We can hope that the world
will continue to move towards universal UTF-8 support.
Holding 2 different representations means that there are continual calls to
