Isn`t it time for FreeBSD to fully support Unicode/UTF-8 by now?

Yes! Good of you to say so! Your code and other patches will be integrated as soon as you send them.

It is considered to be standard charset by now. XML uses it by default.
If you are working with texts in different languages there is no
alternative to UTF-8.
If you chat with a Linux machine you can easily run into charset
troubles if you are
still using the old iso-8859-1.

By now it is no problem to activate UTF-8 for your console.
However a comprehensive Unicode support would require much more:
i.e. configuring all user packages like KDE for Unicode support and
asserting that also file names (f.i. from ext2 partitions) are interpreted
correctly.
