I don't think it's a bug, since IIRC, only US-ASCII chars are allowed in 
All other chars, as well as chars with special meaning, must be encoded.

And this has a reason: when you try to put a 'à' in your URL, is it 
Unix, Windows, Mac? Which was its encoding?
It may be differ greatly depending on your system, be one or two bytes 
long, for example, depending on if you're using ISO-8859-1 or UTF-8.
