FWIW, it's currently way more stable (even in the i18n branch) than vte-
there hasn't been a crash reported against it in months against the
trunk, and the i18n branch in it's current form has no reported crashes,
despite a couple of weeks of testing in the ximian snaps. I have no idea
how much further work hidetoshi needs to do, though.

As it is, zvt is pretty unusable for anyone who needs anything outside
of [A-z]. So... IMHO, it's worth risking destabilizing it because the
remaining bug is so huge. I guess that's a judgement call, though- I'm
not sure whose.
