    Additionally the Java SDK provides the "native2ascii" tool that can also
    to this conversion:

        native2ascii -encoding UTF-8 < source.xml |
        native2ascii -reverse -encoding UTF-16LE > target.xml

    (The intermediate conversion produces the "\uXXXX" hexadecimal
    sequences in Java String notation, using UTF-16 surrogates if needed
    for UTF-8 sequences longer than 3 bytes, and uses a "\\" pair to
    escape ASCII backslashes)
