The problem is that Mason is not yet internationalized, so we
would have to invent our own framework.

If you do not send your 8-bit email encoded either in Quoted-Printable
or Base64, then you’re violating RFC 2822 and will run into trouble
with email gateways:
2.1. General Description
At the most basic level, a message is a series of characters. A
message that is conformant with this standard is comprised of
characters with values in the range 1 through 127 and interpreted as
US-ASCII characters [ASCII]. For brevity, this document sometimes
refers to this range of characters as simply “US-ASCII characters”.
I highly doubt that “nobody does it”; I receive email transparently
encoded in quoted-printable every day with the proper headers, and my
MUA converts it to the correct 8-bit Latin-1 for me automatically.
What makes you say that “nobody does it”?
