That would be interesting indeed, and hopefully I haven't broken any of
PuTTY's Unicode support. Just set the codepage to UTF-8 to try (assuming
MinTTY compiles and runs on 1.7, which I haven't yet tried).
Is there an overview somewhere about the Unicode features in cygwin-1.7?

Good point. I should mention that on the project page.

First off, documentation. :)
