Since Emacs is mainly about manipulating text, this is a very
important point, and should IMO be addressed very soon, if Guile-Emacs
is not going to be a pipe dream.  Emacs has a unified infrastructure
for dealing with text in buffers and strings, whereas Guile has only
strings, and the implementation of i18n features for text is too
dependent on the locales support in the underlying libc.
