I wrote a patch[0] for mg which sort of adds Unicode support a while
back via wchar_t. Upstream interest was low, as they were just about
to release 6.0 and I got the impression they'd rather write it
themselves, but as far as I can tell it works. At the very least,
it could be used as a guide towards which parts of mg need to be
ripped out and rewritten.
