BTW: anyone is working on UFT-8 support for ncurses(w) backend ?

I don't think so, and I don't think it is worth it. Maintaining two backends
IMHO just causes headaches while it doesn't make mc better. I still can't
see why developers do not decide which one to use and drop the other one.

Maybe compatibility with older UN*Xes with curses but no slang?

It's a bogus argument.  UNIX curses was removed long ago, and it had
never worked well anyway.  I don't remember a single person complaining.
Besides, S-Lang is included with mc and it's quite portable.

We had that argument once already. curses is not that old and it is
standard. And it has unicode support. Its just a matter of using it.
