Test::More outputs what you tell it to, that's all. If you get garbage, it's because you provided garbage. Has nothing to do with Unicode.

Many here aren't using UTF8 regularly enough to become aware of all the places where one's code must be adapted for it.

EVERYWHERE. In every language, everywhere you provide a value (not just strings), you need to provide it in the right format. If you don't know the format, you have to look it up.
