Problems with UTF8

Damien, if I understand things correctly, you shouldn't have any
issues with endianness when working with UTF8.
Endianness will only affect you when you deal with unicode (UTF16)
from outside your system, because it could be UTF16BE or UTF16LE, and
as far as I can tell, Rev always treats unicode strings as having the
endianness of the the system it's running on, so it may be necessary
to swap the pairs of bytes.
