The situation in Woody is: no support for bidi/RTL; the first stage
installer (dbootstrap) mostly works with UTF-8; the second stage
installer (base-config) currently does not.

We might possibly get base-config i18n into a woody point release but I
wouldn't bet on it.  There is no prospect of bidi support appearing in
this codebase.

Right now I don't know what the situation is with i18n in
debian-installer, either the status right now or in terms of a future
roadmap.  I would hope that by the time d-i reaches primetime it will
have full support for UTF-8.  Making it work with bi-di is probably
going to involve some effort from people who are familiar with those
particular issues.
