It's possible, but troublesome. The most difficulty is that the fonts
included in X are not compatible to UCS4/Unicode and so you have to
write a conversion function (the conversion tables can be got from Furthermore, the mapping from UCS4 to the codings
of these fonts, is not one-to-one ;-(

Thay say that gtk+ will support UCS4/UTF8 in the next development
cycle, anyway.

The former, perhaps. I have not examined in detail.
