So I prefer not checking it in.
I had the idea to start a Unicode debate on how to handle this.
My first idea would be :
unsigned int grub_putcode(...);
unsigned int grub_putchar(...);

Ignoring the return value would make those function act as they do now.
Reading it would give the number of char actualy displayed on screen.
0 = Unicode char incomplete (for putchar only, for putcode might be
"invalid Unicode" if applies)
1 = one char written
2 = a char as wide as 2 "usual chars" (I think I read somewhere it exists)
(and so on)

I was also wondering about the font format. Does any editor exists ? Or
is it taken from an existing format ? I'm dying to see Japanese chars on
grub menu while playing the tetris theme :] .
