Assumedly.  There's already [wchars2bytes] in pdstring, which will
convert wchar_t codepoints to a locale-dependent byte-string, but this
is very system dependent.  the function u8_toucs() from s_utf8.c should
perform *exactly* a unicode-codepoint-string to utf8-byte-string
conversion; the function u8_wc_toutf8() converts a single (unicode)
