There's a bug (already reported upstream by a Debian dev) in wget causing 
international domain names to be not properly converted  to punycode (xn- 
form) if the current locale is a  UTF-8 one (the locale encoding detection in 
wget is completely broken in my opinion).

Playing with the code, I found some workarounds to made some locale working 
(eg with ru_RU.UTF-8 I was able to do wget http://президент.рф), but not all 
(like the japonese example in Gaetan mail), so I give up and removed the pkg 
from [testing].
