serverconfigs -> punnycode
dns in background -> punnycode

self written backends -> input UTF8, transparent translation
while generating serverconfigs and translate back for display

nothing other happens if you make "nslookup wü"
there is no "ü" in any configuration nor in EPP/DRI nor
in any postfix/dbmail/dovecot configuration

[harry@srv-rhsoft:~]$ nslookup wü
