I've added a Unicode enabled Telnet to the same file. Just set the
environment variable to the mapping file and it will interpret Unicode sent
via UTF-8. Sending Unicode also works but I have not implemented a
"compose" sequence for arbitrary Unicode code points so you are limited to
what your keyboard can produce.
