Would you mind clarifying what scenario(s) aren't working for you now?
I'm aware that the situation is still rather messy but thought that at
least the basic use case of outputting non-ASCII characters was now
sorted out?

One thing is that as mentioned in one of the recent updates, you'll need
to set DARCS_DONT_ESCAPE_8BIT=1 to get UTF-8 output at all.

I think realistically any proper cleanup of this code won't fit into the
2.10 series as it'll require significant refactoring. Hopefully 2.12 though.

If you could update the bug with the current status from your point of
view that'd be great.
