    Interesting, I didn't know that there's a "no return" switch
    to UTF-8, I only knew ESC 25 42 to UTF-1.

    Googling for "25 2F 49" I found a nice page:

    Apparently there is (or was) also ESC 25 47 for UTF-8 (with
    an unencoded "return option" ESC 25 40).

    Does that mean that I could use CSI ESC 5B "as is" in UTF-8
    (within a 2022 context), but for CSI 9B I'd use C2 9B ?
