 Utf8StringMarshal.zip contains an actual implementation.
 Note that encoding conversion is costy anyway but I don't think that 
 it's worse than an unmanaged conversion.

+I had a look at Gtk# and I found that it has a Marshaller.cs that 
+does UTF-8 conversion and it allocates memory using g_malloc.
+This means that an ANSI string change to Encoding.Default would not 
+affect Gtk# at all.
+But it still would be much easier to use custom marshalers in Gtk# 
+as well.
