4 actually,
10FFFF needs four bytes:

11110xxx 10xxxxxx 10xxxxxx 10xxxxxx
10FFFF = 00001010 11111111 11111111

Fill in the blanks, starting from the bottom, you get:
11110000 10101111 10111111 10111111

Surely there are UTF-8 codes that are at least 3 bytes.  I have a
_vague_ recollection that you have to keep escaping and escaping to get
up to like 4 bytes for some asian code points?
