No, that way is going to give you worse portability problems than what
we have now.  Older implementations won't have %ls, and even if they
do, they might not have wcstombs() which is the only way you'd get from
libc's idea of wide characters to an encoding we recognize.

That argument might be convincing if OSX behaved that way for all
multibyte characters, but it doesn't seem to be doing that.  Why is
only 'х' affected?
