A number of X11 properties can be stored using this encoding, and at the moment we just ignore them.. At least since r1781, we no longer cause errors by trying to retrieve things encoded as
COMPOUND_TEXT until we actually need them.
Unfortunately, I cannot find a single example of python code to do the decoding - and the format is arcane..
Maybe this can help:Xutf8TextPropertyToTextList
adds hooks to property get/set so we allow more than one encoding type and pass the actual encoding type used to the decoding functions
COMPOUND_TEXT any more.
