 Hmm, do you mean that we can modify it to perform charset conversion?
 That also may be a solution - but it will require wrappers for all functions
 that return locale-dependant information (though there are not many) and
forcing programmers to use these wrappers. Or we should force programmers to
convert return values of such functions to utf8 (AFAR QT uses this apporach).
 But we should choose only one of these options of course.
