On a related note, does it support WTF-8? I.e. encoding lone UTF-16
surrogates (malformed UTF-16 sequences) within the UTF-8 scheme. It is
needed to guarantee UTF-16 → UTF-8 → UTF-16 roundtrip of invalid UTF-16
data on Windows, and is not an invalid behavior per se, because all valid
UTF-16 sequences still map bijectively onto valid UTF-8 sequences.
