It's possible to set your Linux console to grok UTF8.  I don't
remember the details, but I'm sure you can Google for it.

By the way, does anyone know The Right Way to deal with UTF-8 in
Haskell?  I.e., take that 8 byte UTF-8 string and convert it to a 5
character Unicode string (so it can be manipulated)?
