That was my first idea, yes. Normalizing to utf and get read of whatever 
trouble might lie on the way. Then I read on the MBlib docs that 
japanase chars may take up to 6 byte each, and that would hardly fit 
into a utf-16 format.

Again, all my worries are probably based on the sole fact that I never 
treated chinese/korean/japanese text in my life so I easily get deceived 
in my elaboration.

Thanks a lot for starting the subject. You saved me a lot of trouble in 
the coming winter :)
