Handling keyboard input on unix when locale set to utf-8

Hello, all.

Many modern linux distros now use utf-8 locale as a default setting. Also
stock unix VM never seemed to handle unicode keyboard input under this
locale. Are there any plans to do it properly or linux users are supposed to
fix the VM themselves (by beating heads against of this thread for example:
http://www.nabble.com/Unix-UTF8-input-td11050488.html )? May be anyone has
got a 'proper' VM already - it is hard to believe that such drawback is not
fixed long time ago.
