     Looks good. Nice to see an additional step away from silly
     8-bit encodings towards a unicode world.

     You mention Glib::ustring as an alternative, I would also mention Qt QString
     that also provides conversion to and from utf-8.

     As an aside - it sure would be a nice thing to have a better string class
     than std::string (QString comes to mind) along with all the unicode
