Sounds good.  The function name may want to be a bit more specific about
what happens w.r.t to eight-bit-control and eight-bit-graphic chars as
compared to latin-1 chars (in Emacs-22, the former had values between
128 and 255 and the latter had much larger values whereas with the
unicode switch the reverse is true IIUC).
