        Log: Tweak the definition of the bit complement on UTF-8 data:
             if none of the characters in the string are > 0xff,
             the result is a complemented byte string, not a (UTF-8)
             char string.  Based on the summary in

             This should give us the maximum backward (pre-char string)
             compatibility and utf8 compatibility.  The other alternative
             would be to limit the bit complement to be always byte only,
             taking the least significant byte of the chars.
