I forgot about this problem. Non-ASCII PS output isn't even close to
working in v20x. It works in v299, though, with support for Unicode PS
output in general (including CJK).

The only workaround I can think of is to use v299 for PS output.
Admittedly, that's not a pleasant solution, since it means keeping a
v299 tree just to produce PS, and there may be porting hassles (such as
having to use \343 instead of ã in strings, so that both v20x and v299
can read the code).

Not currently, but I'll put it on the list of things to add.
