For me it looks quite nice, but it seems to me that this idea disables
non-unicode KiCad version completly*, and what about data format for
boards and schematics? I think they never really supported Unicode (am
I right or not?). This means files saved in version of KiCad with this
patch cannot be opened in older one - operation will mess all new
characters. I am speculating now.

* - as far as I remember J.P. said that currently KiCad cannot work
with UniCode support.
