Phil, we are on the same song-sheet on this one!

Sitting (mostly) in Asia, 8-bit, especially UTF-8, is dear to us, and
has not been a problem AT ALL with defaults. Nor with Qmail before Exim.
nor Courier-MTA. So it has been over a dozen years and 8BITMIME has not
bitten OURazz.

But after turning ON 8BITMIME, experimenting with DJB's site and a few
others, I came to the conclusion that punycode et al aren't just
'...baroque..'.

They just have to be the byproduct of a collective misuse of banned
substances, as the 'cure' is worse than the disease!

FAR worse..

Fact is, hardware AND software-wise, most have already made the trip.
And long since. Any remaining damn well SHOULD be pushed off their perch.

Why wait?

Give me a physical ship-to off-list, and I'll furnish the first bottle
or two to hasten the process.

Hope you don't mind single-malts. I am woefully ignorant about blends,
and wouldn't want to *harm* anyone...

;-)

Best,

Bill
