I thought the UTF-8 interfaces of XFree86 were deprecated because they
are redundant (extended segments work fine, and XFree86 already uses
them even where specifically prohibited by the ICCCM, namely for ISO
8859/15), and I thought the X Consortium opposed it.  It was discussed
on emacs-devel about a year ago.  Has this changed?

Surely this will need to be configurable in Lisp, maybe even
controlled by the user.  The variety of conventions used by
applications is too wide, and the standards hard to interpret.
