Cool, quick question (for anyone). I'm trying to port the (newly open
sourced) VisualWorks XML parser (it validates!). Being able to decode
UTC-8 (?) or whatever would be a good start (I think! I don't  know much
about this).

Anyone have some insight to offer? (About anything. Wait, scratch that.)

VW has a StreamWrappingEncoder (or some such) which, from what I can
remember, maps the stream to the internal form. Someone want to whip me up
one for Unicode?
