[C++-sig] Creating a unicode instrance from utf-8 encoded string

I'm trying to do something which should be very simple, but I'm not 
having much luck figuring out how from the existing documentation.

For a python 2 project I am trying to return a gettext-translated string 
as a unicode instance to python. The return value for gettext() is a 
UTF-8 encoded char*, which should be pretty simple to convert to a 
python unicode instrance using PyUnicode_FromString. I have a feeling 
this is trivial to do, but I can't seem to figure out how.
