So you do not consider the fact the following code compiles (and runs!)
cleanly as a painful problem?

std::string s = get_utf8_string();
s[42] = '?';

I consider that std::string is cool as an internal for a Boost.Locale
implementor, not as a standard API for encoded strings that should be
used by all C++ developpers.
