+1 -- if there was a library that did easy conversion from
std::wstring (usually the default in Windows now) to proper UTF-8
encoded std::string in Boost that would be *awesome*. I can totally
use that library in cpp-netlib too. ;)

I'm not sure, but maybe Spirit.Karma can handle something like that? I
haven't checked yet but a string conversion/encoding utility like that
would be very much appreciated IMO.
