LFS + UTF8

Hi.

When compiling LFS6, i read this in the manual: "LFS should not be used 
in locales that utilize multibyte character sets (including UTF-8)".

Although I live in Brazil and I don't really need UTF8 (iso8859-1 works 
fine), I like the idea of using utf8 everywhere. So I would like to know 
where UTF8 can cause problems in LFS, if they are critical problems, 
what happens if I use UTF8 by default... (until now i had no problems).

Thanks.
