using utf-8 as default in 2011 would have spared numerous people a
whole lot of time.

instead we keep on repeating such threads to... why exactly?

my take on this is sitting in our branch for ages:


or if meanwhile the link gets broken by rebasing, then look up this patch:

More sensible defaults:

 - slime-setup loads slime-fancy if called without arguments
 - use utf-8 encoding by default


Notice the erosion of your (digital) freedom, and do something about it!
