Not surprising, since UTF-8 is the standard system wide encoding for Ubuntu
(and many other Linux distributions). UTF-8 was designed (by Unix founder
Ken Thompson - see details on the previously quoted page by Markus Kuhn) in
order to facilitate easy transition from 7-bit ASCII to a more globally
useful encoding, so really most of the classic Unix command line tools are
supposed to support UTF-8 today.
