Well, do you know anything about this caution that currently exists on
the page? Perhaps we need to wait for Alexander to comment?

========================================================================
Caution

Ed determines character boundaries incorrectly in multibyte locales. See
the Breaks Multibyte Characters section of the Locale Related Issues
page for a more general discussion of this problem. Use of Ed in
installation instructions for BLFS packages such as teTeX-3.0 is not a
problem, as BLFS instructions never use Ed to modify a file containing
non-ASCII characters.
