It is certainly not temporary, also considering people won't be very
happy to see us make a big incompatible change right after telling
them to convert their source code to UTF-8. I think we have a
responsability to stay coherent here.

I think we may consider migrating to UTF8String when it's implemented
and if it proves a viable solution.

Not to mention: What would the alternative be?
