I read that thread and checked the branch. I will try to rebase the
branch on top of master manually and see if storing long instead of
char[UTF_SIZ] will simplify the code.

I do not think changing 'long' to 'wchar_t' is a good idea because
'wchar_t' has undefined size and long is at least 32-bit long.
