Yes of course, Rostislav came to me with a great interest in UTF8ization
of mc and wanted me to supervise his bachelor's thesis in this field and
I'm very happy because of that.

I have never claimed I'm the only original author of the UTF-8 patch.
The misunderstanding most likely came from our discussion about
downstream patches in the Red Hat mc branch, where we have more of UTF-8
related patches, some of them written by me in addition to the main
UTF-8 patch where many people were involved.

Thanks for good pointers for Rostislav and I'm also joining wishing 
good luck in his upcoming work!
