As far as Toby's approach does not force me to use utf8 on ZMI,
using unicode internally might not be a big problem, maybe.
I say 'maybe', because I still cannot correctly grasp how far
new features' unicode objects will make an effect on legacy code.
So, I just worrying about.

Thank you, Heiichiro.

What you wrote 1)-4) is nearly what I think.
Regardig 5)-7), it's not exactly same with my opinion.
I have an ambivalent opinion about using of Unicode.
But, for the moment, it's not essential issue here, 
I'm not going to discuss now. Thanks, anyway.
