for non-LaTeX users ;-)
in LaTeX, there is NO problem with 8-bit chars, as it does it properly
and in a portable way.
in LaTeX, one doesn't need TCX nor enctex nor even 8-bit output to
files. other macro packages are not as advanced as latex and use
non-portable solutions (which are not really multilingual, BTW).

the problem with lshort (actually, fancyvrb) can be solved purely in
macro level, as i did to help compile the russian translation some
