It's not a Unicode library in the form I described; it's just a workaround for broken systems lacking UTF-8 locales, for which it replaces all the important functions (mb*towc and wc*tomb, etc.) with versions that convert UTF-8. I believe it also replaces the is* and to* functions and maybe a few others. But it doesn't help with any Unicode processing needs the application might have outside the scope of C or POSIX, and it's not meant to be used on systems that already have proper UTF-8 support at the system library level.
