Bug#424631: release-notes: Programs not supporting unicode out of the box.

Package: release-notes
Severity: minor

Dear Stable release team,

I was invited on -devel to submit a bug against the release notes to
mention the fact that emacs does not support unicode out of the
box. The text could be added in section 5 and could be something like
the following.

Packages not configured for Unicode by default.

Some packages are not configured to use unicode locales by default,
and their usage will be problematic when inputting non-ASCII

* emacs21, emacs21-nox :

  Please refer to the bug number 419490
  (http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=419490) to
  instruct emacs to honor the locale setting of the terminal you are
  using, and to use Han characters.

Have a nice day,
