I'm jumping in, because I am interested in Unicode conversion facets...

I had a look at the serialization library's converter in
and noticed that utf8_codecvt_facet_wchar_t::do_in() doesn't check for
non-shortest UTF8-sequences. There might also be some issues on
platforms with 16-bit wchar_t (possible overflow).
I suggest using (parts of) the UTF library in the Boost files area to solve
those problems. This could also be another step towards an officially
supported Unicode library... ;-)
