Just for information (mostly to the ones reading this email list from
archives). It now works using utf input and get. A minimal file:

% start of test file %

\definetypeface [russian]
  [rm] [serif] [computer-modern] [default] [encoding=t2a]

Мама и Папа  % Some russian characters
% stop of test file %

For this to work, you have to generate the tfm-files if you do not
already have them (which can be done with the afm2tfm util).

Thanks Hans and Adam for the fast replies to get this working :)
