   I've added a configure check that defines
   scm_{to,from}_utf8_string to scm_{to,from}_locale_string if
   the former isn't available in libguile.  Seems to work okay.

   Obviously there are some cases where we still use the locale
   functions explicitly, e.g. parsing command-line arguments.

Probably sooner or later it behooves us (clients of libguile)
to hold a libguile "portability summit", where common bits of
autoconfigury, shimming, etc can be actively pooled, refactored
and (hopefully) incorporated into a time-saving tarball.

In this way, stuff like the autoconf check you mention, and
stuff like Autogen's or Serveez's C shims can be centrally
maintained and not re-invented time and time again.

[0] or "pit of despair", depending on your mood :-/
