Yes, it seems that the code once again assumed ASCII encoding, the raw
& 0x80 tells us that.  I actually already had changed that to be
abstracted behind a macro, UTF8_IS_CONTINUED().  Next we'll need to
define these macros in EBCDIC correctly (mapping to ASCII and back).
Simon Cozens already had some patches to this effect a few weeks back,
I'll go dig.
