I had thought about the former, since it seems easier for me.

Oh, I'm glad to hear that. Of course if you can provide the required
package to build the i18n boot-floppies, then any new forked package
isn't needed at all.
And sorry, I don't have any working patch yet. I just plan to work on it.
When I sent my ITP to wnpp, I had not know that you already prepared to
create the utf8 version of newt pacakges.
Please go on, and we'll happily use your package with utf-8 support
to build i18n boot-floppies.
