Arnaud,

I am working on a multibyte string implementation for Erlang in my
free time. It handles utf-8/-16 and a bunch of other encodings, but
the code is incomplete and needs more work. But preliminary tests did
bring satisfactory results.
See http://sungnyemun.org/wordpress/?p=238 for more details [and other
entries tagged as mb].

Mixed-encodings tables produced with mb:
