For those users who are not that familiar with databases and their encoding it would be great if the documentation mentioned that you should not use utf8_bin as collation.

Why don't we want utf8_bin as it's case-sensitive (instead of utf8_general_ci which isn't)?

For the record, the reason it was suggested not to use utf8_bin is because of an outstanding bug when this collation is used with mysqldb (#2335).
