Regarding IO, Regex and PackedString: Unicode causes some problems.
IO: not clear how the conversion framework should look like.
I experimented here, see qforeign, but I'm not very happy with it
and got no feedback at all.
Regex: it would be silly and would have limitations to convert string
and regexps to an 8-bit encoding. I don't know what Unicode engine
to use. E.g. Python has its own (supporting Unicode). I don't know
if it's possible to implement it efficiently in Haskell.
PackedString: no conceptual problems, just needs to be implemented.
I tried a packed string type implemented in terms of UArray and it's
about as fast as PackedString in one test.
