Yes, it is a good idea.

It would only require that we all used the correct names of other 
contributors - preferably real names. It also requires a UTF8 console in 
order to also non-english characters were correctly. For example, Slávek and 
Slavek are for statistics something different. Not to mention the fact that 
it could be used 'á' character from ISO 8859-1 and that is also different 
than 'á' from UTF8. And statistics will consider it as three different 

By the way, although the page with list of patches in the header correctly 
contains information about UTF-8 encoding in the HTTP header is still 
ISO-8859-1 and Konqueror because it displays incorrectly - Slávek :)
