unicode in emacs 21

my favourite editor is gnu emacs. i use it for html, java programming,
latex and much more.
so far i have been using emacs 20 on GNU/Linux with Otfried Cheongs utf-8
mode and Markus Kuhns UCS-fonts to work with utf8 files on the X11
version of gnu emacs.

i must say: I am not really satisfied with that. There is vim 6.x now with
full utf-8 support on the xterm. It is much faster than emacs on x11 of
course. But I don't like it yet because it's so different from good old 
Emacs ... :-(

I was happy to see Emacs 21 announced. but the unicode support does not
seem to have moved forward very much - as i have heard and read from some

my question: what happened in this area in Emacs 21 ?? Is the internal
representation still the special MULE format ??~
And are there any plans and/or activities to achieve these things ?

since i am not an elisp hacker i am only asking at the moment.
any comments appreciated
