we only provide utf-8 support for things that can be expressed in a
latex standard encoding.  this rules out greek (even modern greek:
no-one has a latex compatible encoding for it -- i.e. one that will work
with the default uc/lc tables ... a proposal to go with iso 8859-7 fell
down as soon as we looked at the table for that encoding).
