Hi!

The utf-8 patches add a "is this valid utf-8" check to all the
operations that care. We could probably do that for the ASCII-CI
stuff if you can define what ASCII means....

That's easy actually, since ASCII is a 7-bit code it can only contain char values between 0-127 or in other words the highest bit must not be set in any char. But probably this strict check could break other stuff.

cheers,
Michael
