[erlang-questions] unicode: what about printing terms?

I'm starting a new thread so as not to mix everything up in the same ones.

How is printing going to work when atoms/variables can be unicode? Is
there going to be ~tp and ~tw, to follow the style from strings? When
unicode becomes the default, will ~tw disappear or remain?

Or maybe each output stream will get a default encoding and ~w/~p will
follow that?

best regards,
