The current internal interface used to draw text on screen,
, dates from the pre-Unicode days of PuTTY, and takes a string of
eight-bit characters in one argument, and an attribute word (including
the high-order eight bits of the Unicode characters) in another.
This is clearly mad, and
do_text() should be passed a UCS-2
string. This would also allow for longer strings to be passed to
do_text() at a time.
