How about making FT_New_Face more usable on Win32, always supporting
UTF-8 as well as the default encoding.  This could go in ftstdlib.h:

This looks nice, but...

I haven't been able to test this yet. Maybe someone will want to.

I need tests since I don't use Windows.

Understood. I'll do the testing eventually if no one else does. My Windows XP machine died a while ago. (I'll have to get one soon since most of my customers use Windows.) I normally cross-compile for Win32 on my Macintosh, but haven't tried to cross-compile Freetype. It's not clear how soon I can work on this, so I made the code available in case anyone else has the time and interest to try it sooner. For my own purposes I can work around the problem by using FT_New_Memory_Face on Win32, until FT_New_Face is fixed.

All the best,
