Be careful. I'm sure I remember finding out that the Windows functions
are completely broken in some circumstances, although for the life of me
I can't remember what those are, other than it had something to do with
UTF-8. It may well be restricted to CJK, Thai, or Vietnamese codepages,
and/or be to do with composite characters, in which case it might not
be a problem.
