"The UTF-8 default encoding, which make many magic comments omissible"
because i'm from Germany and we had to add:
# coding: utf-8
in every freaking controller to get our german stupid letters (öäüß) to run without problems.
so i'm looking forward to my next project where i can use 2.0 from the scratch.
We are Danish, and are writing comments in English, and all locale strings is placed in i18n-files.
