It isn't.  It will need to learn about widechars, which is painful for
the editor's developer.  (But only if she writes in C: "what do you
mean I can't use strncat?!")  Other than that, there's probably not
that much to it (see the last part of my reply to Josiah).  Most
editors have access to a reasonable GUI environment these days that
will handle the input and the fonts (even if that environment comes
via Terminal or uxterm).
