The trick is to always use the widechar variants of the API calls, and
convert UTF-8 to UTF-16 before calling them.
Sure, there will be some overhead, but might be useful to measure the
impact before designing around a problem which isn't a problem.
You are always free to regard the code as a source of spare parts ;)
