You said that this doesn't need to be a default. However, you didn't
say that this should not be a default.

Thank you, I may be a maintainer of this script. However, I think
terminal emulator alone is an important infrastructure like editor
and pager which is related to native language. I don't need such
a generalized way and I prefer simpler way (though I don't say that
I must not have such a generalized way.)
PS. I will be away and IP-unreachable from tomorrow to March 4th.
