want to go to the 2345th byte, not character

I'm sitting in a unicode buffer and I want to go to the 2345th byte.
ESC 2 3 4 5 C-f will take me to the 2345th character, wide and narrow
included, but not the 2345th byte.  Therefore there should be an
additional command that operates byte wise.  No I don't want to leave
unicode mode.

So a C-f analog that counts in bytes would be good.
"byte-forward-char" sounds good but must be an unrelated variable.

   C-f runs the command forward-char
   Move point right N characters (left if N is negative).

Perhaps that right and left stuff should be reworded in view of BIDI
(Arabic, Hebrew) languages? Just say forward and backward?
