What happens if I log into the Hurd machine remotely, from an UTF-8
capable terminal (either hooked on a serial line or via telnet/ssh)?
Doesn't the term need to be multibyte aware then just as well?  That doesn't
mean we shouldn't do the console-specific solution in the
console+libtermserver thingie, but I think I would like to look for the
generic solution first (in particular as the normal term is what we are
exclusively using for the time being).
