The advice should be to use Mule-UCS iff that is what you need.  I,
for once, rarely use it -- not that there's anything wrong with it
apart from the fact it clobbers data it can't represent and is quite
large.

What has that to do with utf-8?

I'd rather have the Meta key on a tty.

You can't, unless someone has added that recently.  (It's not
difficult where the facility exists.)
