 You have to use UTF-8 codeset or filter to use uxterm, 
isn't it restriction?  And uxterm's text processing depends on
UTF-8 code set, I can say. If you use other codeset, uxterm can't process
the text.  So I think uxterm depends on UTF-8(external text representation),
doesn't it?  

 If not, what did you mean below?
