Re: MML charset tag regression

The current Emacs still don't unify Unicode and the other
legacy charsets (e.g. iso-8859-2, jisx0208, gb2312)
automatically.  So, for instance, if iso-8859-2 characters
arrive at Emacs with UTF8_STRING, they are decoded into the
charset mule-unicode-0100-24ff and treated differently
(e.g. in searching) than the characters of the charset

Okay, that explains it. But playing the devils advocate a bit, does this
not simply point out a problem with Emacs, not GTK?  If UTF8_STRING is
the recommended thing to use, changing GTK would not help much, as there
are other X toolkits out there (Qt, Motif, and so on), that will start to
use UTF8_STRING also (Qt already does)?
Isn't this an argument for getting the Unicode Emacs branch released, or
unify charsets?
