More than that.  Ruby's regex does handle characters so that the
problem you mentioned never happen in Ruby (if you specify proper
character encoding).

Kconv is based on the encoding converter developed before Unicode was
defined.  But you have iconv and uconv modules.

By the way, I will tell the blade maintainer about EUC-JP issue.
