I started trying to port the patches I found in the bf-utf repository over to the `slang' Newt (snewt) in the `gnewt' module. Are those changes backwards compatible? I know nothing about that. Note that there is a `minislang' in `gnewt' that I think we can use... I did not apply any patches to it. If it's backwards compatible, we should switch to the `gnewt' tree rather than the `bf-utf' one for Newt and Slang.
