I've read the source, and I think non-UTF8 version has support for 
locales that are not UTF8.

UTF8 is not the mainstream (yet).

Yes, please check the diff/upload pending that I have done.
It should solve most problems, if not all that exist in 
the current version.

I don't really care about converting every program to 
UTF8, or making new slang1 package that is binary incompatible with upstream
versions and every other distribution, or whatever else.

I need a base that works, and is bug free.

Please be prepared to recompile slang packages 
with UTF8 support, if you so care.
