As minibuffer-message accepts any Lisp string,
temp_echo_area_glyphs will given a multibyte string.  But,
fortunately, as temp_echo_area_glyphs uses insert_string, a
multibyte string is correctly inserted in a minibuffer.

For instance,
        C-x C-f ESC : (minibuffer-message "NON_ASCII_STRING") RET
surely shows "NON_ASCII_STRING" temporarily.

Is this kind of thing what you are worrying about?
