That part specifically is not acceptable -- if utf8-strings is to be a
mandatory dependency, the .cabal file's dependencies must also be updated.

without properly supporting UTF-8.  Therefore, I think it is worthwhile to add
the dependency.  Please submit a new patch that updates the .cabal file and
turns the utf8-string optional dependency into a regular dependency.
