You got the point. Nobody would use program with such a slow feedback if
there were more acceptable solutions. And adding support for unicode is
a matter of several lines to allow switching the cell renderers. Anyone
who could afford it could use unicode. For the others (who are the
primary target) 8-bits are enough.

I can't affect the performance of the CellRenderer. The Gtk+ demos are
faster, but the difference is that my table is bigger (covers almost the
whole screen) and also more dense (12 columns).
