Ok, that makes sense.
I don't really get why the SUPPORTED file postfixes all UTF-8 locales
with ".UTF-8" as well as adds " UTF-8". That seems redundant
information; it seems all UTF-8 locales are in the form of
<locale>.UTF-8 UTF-8, while all other encodings simply use <locale>
<encoding>... Anyway, since we don't control that syntax, let's indeed
keep it simple and compatible.
I would like usage of the colon better than the comma though...
