It occurs to me that perhaps it is not unreasonable after all to
restrict the library to supporting Unicode encodings for in-memory
character representation. It would, I think, still be necessary to
support all of the Unicode encodings, though, since it would be
important that these facilities can be used efficiently with existing
libraries that depend on particular encodings, like UTF-8 and UTF-16.
