I don't like that idea to use another component. At least most modern
languages (Python, Perl, TCL) have a reasonable unicode support and it makes
few sense to use another package. Instead I am in favour for some kind of
callback or wrapper mechanism to wrap unicode related functions calls into
languages native unicode support.
