want it to be UTF-8 then that won't be a problem. (Just a small
policy decision.) The frontend would have to know how to convert it
into something which displays properly, though.
Does anybody have a problem with having the templates in UTF8?

Description: Ben's Own Graphics Library - graphical terminal
Ben's Own Graphics Library is a small framebuffer library,
including basic widgets, support for text in multiple
languages, and mouse handling.
This package contains bterm, a utf-enabled framebuffer terminal.
Right now there is a ncurses and a slang frontend, I am not sure of
the state of those, but it should be possible to link the better of
them against something-utf8 or create a newt-utf8 frontend.
