I wanted to reply:
  std::wifstream f("AFileInUtf8.txt");
  f.imbue(std::locale(std::locale(), new

But it seems that the codecvt_facet in
boost/libs/detail/utf8_codecvt_facet.cpp only supports UTF-8<=>UCS-4
It thus seems that it can't be used with wchar_t on a platform where
sizeof(wchar_t) != 4, right?

Am I missing something?
