      disable locales completely, just rely on the xord/xchr/xprn arrays

Sounds like there is no disagreement, so I'd say, Olaf, go ahead and do
it when you have a chance.

All: Olaf questions whether plain should be 7-bit or 8-bit by default,
pointing out that the TeXbook talks about ^^ notation in tty/log output
for plain.

I see that argument, but I'm not sure if it will be better or worse for
the users to have plain different than everything else.
