I think that you can say "all C libraries".
Would it possible to convert the encoded string to bytes just before call Gtk?
(job done by some Python internals, not as an explicit conversion)
I don't know if it would help the discussion, but Java uses its own modified
* NUL byte is encoded as 0xc0 0x80 instead of 0x00
* Java doesn't support unicode > 0xFFFF (bouuuuh!)
