Well, the point is that it does UTF-8 in libc, which is always
the real issue. X11 really has nothing to do with it. Frankly,
the syscons has always been a bit crufty. I've never even been
able to get it to do any mode other than 24x80. On the other

Nations have recently been led to borrow billions for war; no nation
has ever borrowed largely for education.  Probably, no nation is rich
enough to pay for both war and civilization.  We must make our choice;
we cannot have both.
