Not the same with chinput. chinput actaully let you input under
a UTF-8 CTYPE. You just need an app which support proper UTF-8
locale. Of course you need to set the XMODIFIERS to @im=Chinput and
set the locale to zh_CN.UTF-8 or zh_TW.UTF-8. The zh_CN/TW part is
important, Chinput need those part.

mlterm should support UTF-8. Just supply it with proper fonts.
rxvt cannot do it.

Yes, don't use xfs-xtt with XFree86 4.x. Use the xtt module, remove
the freetype module. xfs-xtt will drag down your Xserver and make wiered
things happen.

I don't how the filesystem play with encoding. But 
'find' and 'iconv' might help. 

man find
man 1 iconv
