Actually I use GNU Emacs 23 (although they flame me for calling it
that even tho that's what it calls itself.. the "real" name is the
emacs-unicode-2 cvs branch). Emacs 22 and earlier have abysmal m17n
support with -nw and poor support for complex scripts even with gui.
So far I haven't seen any area where Emacs 22's UTF-8 support is
better than Emacs 21's.
And no, Emacs _still_ does not auto-detect the right encoding... :(
