Hi Scott,

Let me start another thread with a more suggestive title, in retrospect I
totally see your point.  In the interest of keeping things coherent (which my
original email definitely didn't do) lets keep this thread on the topic of the
technicalities of adding utf8 support and the forthcoming thread on the future
of StumpWM.
