One of the problems I have with "ban packages with unicode names" is
that it doesn't consider what to do when a package name upstream is
non-ASCii. My -1 vote is really a vote against having the Fedora
packager make up a name for an upstream package which I very strongly
oppose. If a proposal were written that told what the packager needs to
do to get an acceptable package name I'd likely abstain or (possibly) agree.
