Just a note.  If you take "hard-wired UTF-8 characters internally"
method, you will have to use nl_langinfo(CODESET) and iconv() (or
their substitution like libcharset and libiconv) to emulate LC_CTYPE
sensibility.  (i.e., It works using ISO-8859-2 in ISO-8859-2 locales,
Big5 in Big5 locales, UTF-8 in UTF-8 locales,...)
