    Ahem. Unicode *IS* UTF-8, UTF-16 and UCS-2. For instance, codepoint
    U+4321 has the value (hex) 4321, which is defined as its Unicode
    value. This is the same in any encoding. So I'm not sure what you
    want. If the C routines at don't do it for you,
    which conversion do you need? LE byte order to BE and back?
    Canonical decomposing? Fallback character substitutions? BOM
    insertion? What?
