For new installations I suggest this - just like with utf-8. For  
existing installations it is constrained by existing use of page and  
branch versions.

Ah, that is not what I meant ;-) Don't add it to the public version  
of 4.1.x. I just wanted to tell those people who need this feature in  
the 4.1.x branch that with a little effort it should be possible ;-)  
- at their own risk.
