Yes, this seems the best option. I think we would need only a new strlib 
(that lib would change a lot); but everything else should work without 
any changes.

But, then, my other question: what is the relationship between Windows CE 
and Unicode? Why did everybody that tryed to port Lua to Windows CE come up 
with this subject? Why can't they just use this approach (UTF-8)?
(this is pure ignorance of my part; I know nothing about Windows CE...)
