I'll have to admit I haven't looked -- if that were true that would be a shame.

I might have been in hibernation at that time as I missed it -- but
consider this message an expression of interest in a *sane* and
*generic* string encoding/decoding/representation library that may
support not only UTF-8 but other Unicode encoding schemes
Pointers to code+documentation would be greatly appreciated.
Also, Boost.Locale getting reviewed soon would be a good thing.
Unfortunately I'm just too busy (and inexperienced) to be a review
manager for *any* of the libraries in the queue.
