[mythtv-users] UTF8 / Japanese support?

Does MythTV (and its MySQL configuration) support the UTF8 encoding
(for, i.e., Japanese)?
The only guidance on getting UTF8 support working is an ugly hack at
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Utf8_Text_in_OSD. This page
bears a warning that it will foul up attempts to upgrade MythTV. I
have attempted the patch, and did indeed find that it caused a lot of
nasty breakage when MySQL ( and presumably Myth as well) was upgraded.
So I've abandoned that line of attack, like the well-mannered and
timid little end user that I am.
The warning message on the page says, "If characters display
incorrectly in MythTV then please submit a bug report." I'd like to
ask what the status before filing a bug ticket. Has anything been
done to fix this?
I looked at the development sources, but didn't see a changelog to
check for this, hence this query.
