Sounds good.

Yep, I should have just asked you to commit.

If people would find it useful, I can't contradict them.
I'm all for it.

Sort of. There was a broken patch for zvt 1.4 that made multibyte
work, but it apparently assumes that all multibyte chars are
double-width (take up two terminal cells). Which isn't accurate,
should use wcwidth() to see how wide a char is.  Also the UTF-8 in zvt
may or may not work, probably doesn't.

This patch has not been ported to libzvt HEAD, so libzvt HEAD doesn't
even have the broken multibyte support.

The replacement font system for X that give antialiasing and so on.
