  Well, I thought I made myself clear. I'm NOT interested in
locale-DEPENDENT UTF-8 support in vi whether it's under Solaris 2.6/7 or
some other OS(I guess AIX 4 has one, too). If that's my interest, I
wouldn't have asked the question in the first place. What I'm looking
for is locale-INDEPENDENT vi supporting UTF-8 which can be run even
under Unix with POSIX locale only.
