I thought of these functions while considering how Wave process the various
phases of C++ translation (see section 2.1 of the standard). I wanted the
conversion to be one native-character to one code-point because that is how
Phase 1 implies it[1]. If you don't think that's right, maybe we should
file a defect with the Standard committee.

[1] In other words, any extended native character (i.e. not a character C++
uses for parsing) must be mapped to one C++ Unicode name, which maps to a
single code-point.
