So do I.  But who has seriously proposed that argument?

My native language requires ISO 8859-1 support, ie. 8-bit cleanness
(among other things).  However, I don't really care if wterm is 8-bit
clean.  I don't use it, so in my prespective we can release with it,
or without it.  Given that a noticeable subset of our users don't need
8-bit-cleanness from a terminal emulator, I'd let it stay.

IMHO there are much more important bugs to deal with.
