Url: #198

Message:

I think default table collation should be changed to utf8*unicode*ci, as it handles properly a much wider array of characters (Cyrillic, for example) at a generally negligible cost of performance.

utf8*general*ci simply does not work properly with too many languages and should be avoided as a default.

What about leaving default collate empty? So it will inherit database default collation / charset. I've just created a ticket suggesting that #DDC-2139 . Because we're experiencing trouble using Symfony2 commands to create database, than create schema/tables/fields, always use "utf8unicodeci" instead of our database default collate.
