Okay, I must have misunderstood something then. Was under the
impression that it had some internals where it worked only in bytes,
and that things wouldn't always work if you used anything other than
UTF-8. It's not an issue for me, since UTF-8 suits me just fine, so
I've never looked into it. Apologies for the Elmer FUD!
