I don't think that one is a show stopper because if you can guarantee the
rest will not break C provides you with \ escapes so you can paste the
string in that way. So the question is the one about feeding utf-8 to
glibc functions and internal cleanness of gtk/glib (eg what C library
dependancies does it have). Having to use \ escapes for the quotes is a
trivial inconvenience.

Agreed - my concerns are to do it right, not whether it should be done.
