Comment (by Claude Paroz):

 I suggest to begin with a very minimal patch like
 [https://github.com/django/django/pull/8853 this PR], which will at least
 allow users to begin converting some database columns to `utf8mb4` through
 custom migrations, and use these columns in their code (where indexing
 doesn't come in their way).

 Working on index issues can come later, and will be needed to run the
 Django test suite with `utf8mb4`.
