That is a good question. In 2012, I'd wonder why a 'rxwt-unicode' exists
at all: are there still terminals that don't support unicode?

I mean: if the '-unicode' bit is there for historical reasons, and
pretty much all x terminals support unicode, then I guess there's
nothing special unicode-wise in rxwt-unicode. If there are still
terminals that don't support unicode, or if rxwt-unicode provides some
extra unicode options beyond "it works normally", then I'd say
works-with::unicode makes sense.

The tag vocabulary at[1] is the best that we have, although you can see
that not many tags have insightful descriptions. It'd be nice if that
improved, though, and I'd love to see patches that go in that direction
being sent to the list.
