What is currently accepted as the proper title for a person from France? Is it still the gender-specific Frenchman/Frenchwoman, or is Frenchperson the new term?
(I use French as just an example, obviously. Same question for English folks)

Frenchman is not gender specific:
However, Frenchman does not = "French man" or "French woman."
"A French person" constitutes the gender neutral form of these.
Use the accepted "Frenchman." To address someone as a "French person" sounds awkward and contrived in my opinion.
