Thanks for doing that, it does indeed make it much easier to follow
your train of thought.

The overall approach looks sane, and while I haven't done a
line-by-line review of every patch on the branch, the ones I did
examine in detail all looked correct. I'll try to keep up as you make
more changes.

You're a brave soul, venturing into that
there-is-no-Unicode-there-is-only-ASCII maze, but you've already made
substantial improvements. The addition of new more Unicode friendly C
APIs for errors and warnings should be of general use outside this
work as well (but given where you're up to, I don't advocate trying to
cherry pick them off the branch).
