Hmm, I don't see what is a bug.  Do you mean a binary output?
But isn't it what `url-unhex-string' is expected to do?  In
eww.el, for example, Lars decodes it using `decode-coding-string'.

Anyway, anyone is free to use emacs-w3m code in Emacs, I think.
I don't know what portion of `w3m-url-decode-string' you are
about to use, though.
