Well, I noticed an annoyance with 'fixed' which is not UTF-8
capable in my environment if I not use
explicitely ;(((

Ergo, if people have set their locale to UTF-8 but don't use an
UTF-8 compliant font, they will get hideous results. Dunno what
is better, but the current situation feels well. Who does not
use UTF-8 at all? Or if not UTF-8, who uses a font which is
incompatible with the locale?

For those who might want have a look at the font mess, just
compile dwm with FONT "fixed" and set your locale to en_US.UTF-8
- that's funny ;)
