I think using this instead of string-as-unibyte should be OK:

  (if (multibyte-string-p str)
      (setq str (encode-coding-string str 'utf-8-emacs-unix)))

What string-as-unibyte does is it makes a unibyte string with the same
bytes as the internal representation of STR, except for raw bytes,
which it converts to their external single-byte form.  Encoding with
utf-8-emacs does the same.
