Probably, unicode is something that we might remove from the
docs, as all modern systems support it. Yet, this chapter
is fun, as it mentions support for the Klington fictional
charset ;)

On the other hand, I bet all other OS user manuals
explicit mention unicode support.

So, convert it to ReST and include it at the user's book.
