Why not just use print to an appropriate terminal (Ie, one that groks
UTF-8)?  That's the whole point of UTF-8 -- an 8-bit clean application
will just DTRT.  At least in the standard C library, printw is for
widechars, ie, UTF-16 or UTF-32.  But Perl's Unicode support is
internally an extension of UTF-8 AFAIK, so `printw' in Perl doesn't
make much sense to me.  (But then, not much in Perl does make sense to
me, I'd rather read raw modem traffic. :-)
