  If we can replace all VMs, that would do.  Of course, the image can
check the VM version so that they can install proper "interpreter"
(including non-interpreting one for later VMs.)

  It should be better to use pre-composed chars for these chars, but
I'm not entirely sure if it makes sense for all different input
