This will likely mean interface additions in dfa.h and some minor
code changes in dfa.c.

One thing that bugged me about dfa.c (when I was looking at this yesterday) is that it maintains some state in static variables, which means it can't be used in multiple threads using different locales. That's not an issue with grep or gawk now, but might be for other apps and might conceivably be a problem even in grep, which has a multithreaded patch pending and might conceivably want to use per-file encodings. So perhaps, while we're thinking about exposing the uni-to-multibyte cache anyway, we might want to look into fixing these other interface issues as well.

PS. I'm dropping address@hidden from the CC: list, as that email address hasn't worked for many years....
