Asian, where the fontset is required. But XIM and fontset appear to be mostly
independent of eachother.
I'll make this change such that when Vim was compiled with the xfontset
feature but no fontset was specified, it works the same way as not compiling
with xfontset support. This was mostly the case already. Perhaps I still
missed a few places though, this should be checked in the next version.

- An extra option. Would be better if meta keys work the same way always.
- Using <M-x> in mappings won't work when 'metaesc' is set.
- Using an ESC causes trouble in Insert mode, it's not normally used for
special keys in the GUI.
It's not clear what problem this option is trying to solve.
