     which was really promising. So the big  question is: Does PSPP
     support such character sets? 

Currently variable names can only be 8 bytes long.  Support for long
variable names is coming very shortly.  This will allow names of up
to 64 bytes long.  So far as I'm aware, there is no restriction on the
character set.  You can use ISO-8859-1, UTF-8 or whatever you like. 

Having said that, I've never actually tried using anything other than
plain ascii.
