[Mono-devel-list] Marshalling UTF-8 strings

Currently, there is support in the Marshal and related classes
to marshal and de-marshal strings to Unicode, Ansi or platform
default encodings. Is there any chance that UTF-8 gets in this
list. Or is it already supported.

In some earlier messages in the newsgroup there're examples
which are using the native g_utf16_to_utf8 functions for this
- but as UTF-8 is a standard enough encoding, can there be 
more direct support for it.

Do the GTK# functions which require UTF-8 strings use the 
native functions to achieve this functionality ?
