Yes, these functions are very vital also for multibyte-language-
speaking (CJK) people, like me. However, as far as I know,
these functions are not implemented yet. (I hope glibc 2.2 will have.)
On the other hand, conversion functions between multibyte characters
and wide characters are available now. Can you use wcstombs() and
printf() instead of wprintf() ?
