Comment (by SergeyBiryukov):

 Replying to [comment:5 ironprogrammer]:
 > Also, apart from the [important] redirect concern, is there a concern
 about how this change to slugs may impact the "meaning" of paths in URLs?
 How important is it that the intended word(s) be maintained in the slug?
 [https://www.searchenginejournal.com/technical-seo/url-structure/ It's
 suggested that keywords in URLs these days don't impact SERPs], but that
 doesn't mean the words in paths should be inaccurate.

 Good point, we might need to check the locale and keep the character in
 certain locales if it changes the meaning of a post slug.
