What, then, should I be doing? Is it legitimate to include UTF-8 in my man
page and assume that it'll be fixed (some day)? This seems... un-Debian-like.
Is there an alternative way of representing Unicode in troff that might work
Of course, a perfectly viable solution is to simply not put non-ASCII
characters in my man page, but this seems kinda cheating. Particularly since I
went out of my way to ask the author how to spell his name in kanji...
