No, that was perl5.005_50. perl5.6 does mark strings as utf8 or not, but
is willing to postpone the decision.

In most cases there should be no need for "use utf8" because it's the
default, and one can "use byte". Support for tagging filehandles as
producing utf8 or bytes is still incomplete, as is XS support (though
there are patches).

The idea is that the first face shown to people is one they can readily
accept - a more traditional logo. The lunacy element is only revealed
subsequently, via the LunaDude. [excerpted from the Lunatech Identity Manual]
