[PATCH 01/10] terminal: UTF-8 support

Please make sure that errors result in only the first byte of an error
being replaced and UTF-8 parsing continuing with the second byte.
For instance if 0xE0 followed by 0x20 should produce an error indicator
followed by a space. It appears this code will only produce an error
In addition this does not appear to be detecting and rejecting overlong
For terminal display I have found it very useful to display the error
bytes as though they are ISO8859-1 or CP1252 bytes. This makes the
result readable if ISO8859-1 is accidentally output to the terminal.
Sorry to be a pain about this but bad UTF-8 handling is one of the
things that really annoys me.
