Then I suggest you read the Plan 9 paper I provided the link to.
The code has been working for two decades. I'll also note that
the UTF8 encoding itself came directly from Plan 9.
And the implementation is far from complex. You can peruse the source
code at http://plan9.bell-labs.com/sources/plan9/sys/src. The grep
implementation is particularly elegant.
Note that Plan 9 does not have any notion of locales. That's where the
complexity (and madness) lies.
