Well, this reminds me your past word "quite time consuming"..

The essencial problem is that wscons(4) lacks
(but ancient x68k ite(4) still supports):
- ISO-2022-JP multibyte support
- EUC-JP support (currently broken but will be fixed soon after my changes)
- displaying Japanese character using the X680x0 on-board Kanji CG-ROM

If we have never be able to reach the reasonable goal for >25 years,
I think we should rather consider acceptable and implementable compromise.
