I'm still using it and I like it very much!

I thought this would allow non-ascii window titles and menu items, and
indeed non-ascii menu items appear fine, but window titles still appear
as "incognito" if they contain greek characters. If they only have
latin-1 characters, they are cut-off at the first non-ascii character.
I think this can be fixed by using Xutf8TextPropertyToTextList when Xft
support is enabled, like XmbTextPropertyToTextList is used with I18N,
but I don't know enough to make a patch...

I've found the patches by Richard Sharman and Roland Renaud described
here very useful:
Would it be easy to integrate them? The link in the message above
doesn't seem to work any more, but I have the patches in case the
developers are no longer here.
