If the NMU'ed utf8 slang is binary-compatible with the non-utf8 
library, why is diverting a bad thing?  It seems to me that most of the 
prior problems were because slang-utf8 was *not* compatible, or not 
functional; if this has been addressed, I would prefer that all 
slang-based software on my system be able to automatically take 
advantage of utf8 support without a recompile.
