Something like that.

I don't see other way than patching it - we basically don't need any of
the functionality provided by _encode function as our locales are in
UTF-8 and same is the user interface, so this function does nothing
after detecting that text is UTF-8 and output as well.

No, all it uses is mbstring for charset conversion.
