I will, if I find enough time.  This is made harder by almost complete
lack of documentation of how multi-tty works.  Can someone please make

figure them out without some guidance.  Judging by the amount of
problems we had lately on any platform but GNU/Linux, I think we will
need much more working knowledge of this feature before we can go on
with merging unicode-2 etc.

Also, how come Karoly is suddenly silent or unavailable for help when
his work is being installed and used on platforms he obviously didn't
try?  It's annoying, to say the least: such a significant change
becomes almost completely unsupported the moment it's merged into the
