That's a good point.  Note that you can make it work even now if you
use --allow-freeform-uid.

Perhaps I am missing something, but it strikes me that users should
never be using the punycode format directly.  This is an encoding to
accomodate software that cannot handle unicode.  Since GnuPG does
handle unicode, the user should be using the actual unicode name and
not translating it and then typing in the translation.

Is there a problem with the regexps and non-7-bit UTF8 characters?
