Sorry for the delay - work continues to be busy.  So I took this week
off, partly to give me time to properly look at the slang problems
(and partly to fix up some things around the house :)

I'm currently preparing the new version 1.4.8, and trying to figure
out where the documentation is for making a udeb.  Then I will try to
figure out if I can create a single UTF8 version of the package.  The
current problems from last time are:

- jed seemed to crash with the utf8 version
- mutt can't to line draw characters properly.

Then it is just a matter of figuring out the depends/provides/conflicts
lines. :)
