To re-iterate: whenever I made use of Umlauts in names, where it worked --- or even just '-' for that matter --- something else broke further down in the tool chain, or build process, at a later time.

Some tool less mature, still integral and more important to have than proper Umlauts in names.

I remember not one instance where it worked and did not have to be reverted back to ASCII-only.
