Hi Christian

For some reason, your mail has a font different from anyone else's emails.
Can you  be sure to send emails as text, instead of HTML ?

Besides that, I think that using the current locale is the best
default. If none is set, then choose UTF-8.

I'm thinking that, while my term is ran with some locale settings, my
crontab is not.
So, whatever decision you choose, it deserves a nice entry in the
documentation so that people don't get puzzled when their programs
stop working when put into a crontab.
