hm probably "(c)" would be better there (and in the license)
this is the only non-ascii character in the code (luckily none of the
contributors has funny name..)

while expecting utf8 is reasonable it is not required by posix or the c standard
(local specific behaviour is always risky and who knows how many non
utf8 safe tools are out there..)
