The "drop-in" diversion was always a fiction in any case, because
SLsmg_Char_Type changed size when UTF-8 was enabled. There isn't any
way to fix this and retain compatibility. Post woody, migrating to a
four-byte SLsmg_Char_Type everywhere (ie making the "utf-8" libraries
the default) seems like the right answer, but I don't think we want to
embark on that exercise at this point in the game.
