Some awareness of the UTF-8 codes being used will likely be necessary. In particular, if we're in the midst of RTL mode, we need to switch it back out to LTR to close out the line and start the next, etc.

Some awareness of character width I suppose, too, to keep the column count correct, and not separating modifiers with their following characters. Most especially, not stopping in the middle of byte-sequence for a single character (which is every char outside of ASCII, but that's easy as the encoding itself makes it very clear when the end of the sequence is reached).

When viewing UTF-8 encoded text, Teseq hinders more than it helps, showing characters as their hex code sequences instead of displaying inline. This is the safest course for when we don't know what encoding the reader supports; but we should allow the user to specify that UTF-8 code should be treated as text.

Will need to distinguish from proper UTF-8, and high-bit bytes that might be intended as controls.
