Again you have fallen into the common underestimation of the upgrade work
required for ACE to work perfectly (including display). What I see is
applications are already having some trouble going from ASCII and local
encoding to UTF. ACE in essence requires the conversion from local
toUTF first and then toACE. I see trouble here...
Yeah, but I suspect it's smaller than you think; once you've got UTF-8 in
place, adding the UTF-8/ACE conversion would be a lot simpler. In any
case, I don't think we can do without ACE, at least as a transition, which
means that a later transition from ACE to UTF-8 wouldn't reduce the
complexity much (you'd still need to talk to ACE-based servers).
