Maybe it's obvious but it's not quite true.  The current CVS trunk support
Unicode fairly well (if you turn on utf-translate-cjk-mode) and the unicode
branch does not support unicode "fully" since it doesn't support bidi and
many other unicode thingies like that.

The unicode branch is the branch that changes the internal text
representation to one derived from utf-8, in order to make it easier to
improve the unicode support.  And yes, it does support unicode better.
