  Note that librote doesn't support utf-8 at all, which is kind of
backwards nowadays. librote isn't very fixeable in that regard btw. Note
that this breakage is _obvious_ on the upstream's screenshots.

  Though they could base their work on
http://git.madism.org/?p=madtty.git that is a rework of librote I did,
and that does support utf-8 [though it misses some uncommited changes to
work great]. This is the base of code that I used to do that:

  It supports utf-8, gets colors right[0] (you cannot launch rote
applications in rote applications, colors are wrong). Though the API is
quite unlike rote, and not documented. And given the triviality of the
reworked code, I'm unsure this warants being a shared library btw.

  [0] though there are some ongoing patches to fix this properly, it
      works well on dark backgrounds only for now.
