 Not sure this is useful as it stands.  For me, all that this patch seems
 to do is to make Firefox's status bar less readable:


 which is a readable Japanese permalink in the status bar becomes:


 which isn't so useful.  In IE there is no difference, as with or without
 this patch the URL is seemingly automatically encoded by the browser.
 Even without the patch applied, Firefox automatically encodes the link
 correctly.  I haven't tried on other browsers, but I imagine that most
 (all?) modern ones will behave nicely.  Besides which doesn't
 sanitize_title_with_dashes() already sort out the post-slug as it is

 In any case, this patch doesn't fix the problem as the above permalink
 still gives a 404 for me on latest trunk even after it is applied.  It
 looks like the permalink containing octets isn't matching the regular
 expression rules correctly, though I can't see why.
