I would like to echo neomjp's request.  The Unicode support in xterm
is enough to do much, like viewing multi-byte documents in Vim.  I use
this script to start a UTF-8 XTerm:

LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 xterm -u8 -fn "*-medium-*--18-*-iso10646-1" -fb
"*-bold-*--18-*-iso10646-1" -fw "*-medium-*-ja-18-*-iso10646-1" -e
bash $@ &

And Latin1 characters, Japanese characters, and most Chinese
characters can be displayed correctly.
