Most Unicode software and libraries use UTF-16 internally, which is easy to use.
Some use UTF-8 even internally, if they see a large majority of
high-volume text in ASCII.
UTF-32 as a string encoding is rare. (Some people call single-code
point integers "in UTF-32".)
Roll your own encoding form, and you can't use any existing libraries... Why?
