Couple of issues:

 a) I think vte actually uses C library functionality on the resulting
    wide characters - in particular wcwidth().

    One the other hand, I think there is an assumption elsewhere in
    VTE that wchar_t is Unicode, so maybe what is needed is to 
    include a wcwidth() implementation on platforms where
    __STDC_ISO_10646__ isn't defined.

 b) UCS-4 may not be the right endianness.
