You're going to break your head ate verey turn if you try to handle
multibyte sequences like that. The only reasonable solution here is to
use wide chars instead of UTF-8 in such places. Which, after a while,
meanse everywhere (and convert to UTF-8 when doing network I/O)

But this is a really huge amount of work.
