I once tried it, while pretesting what became 20.2, and this corrupted
both my nnmail spool, overviews, and `.newsrc.eld', to the point I had
much difficulty and a hard time to recover some good shape out of all this
(and also given I'm far from being familiar with Gnus internals .
If I were a good pretester, I know I should try it again, now, and report
problems patiently. But I confess that I felt miserable enough, the first
time through, that I has been rather shy attempting another try since then.
On the other hand, I would *love* using well-written French names for
mailgroups, and I presume the same applies to a lot of people and languages.
If no one is courageous enough to jump, it will not happen. Sigh!
