It should be noted that over in Java-land, UTF-16 is more or less the

I was just reading up on the Java Native Interface and there they don't
talk about UTF-16, but only about their own version of UTF-8 (sigh).
But this format looks compatible with Perl's input (which does not
check that utf8 data has "minimal possible" encoding).

On output one needs some equivalent of

{ use byte; s/\0/\x80\xc0/g; }
