I disagree here (until discussion is meaningful).

The problem is  not a bug/feature of selene
but how we see unicode, utf8 , strings manipulation, octet stream etc.
from the point of view of typography .

I'm not surprise if someone says "OK, I undertand unicode.utf8.find,
but I think we need for our purposes
an unicode.utf8.findutf8 that does this & that " --- but maybe this
doesn't care selene developers at all, because it's a typography (and
TeX) issue.

So the first reaction is "Is it a bug ?"   and we must be able to
resolve this question as soon as possible .
Next "If no bug  do  we need something more ?" but here we can be more
relaxed --- I'm lazy.

To be honest, I expect more and more questions about these issue ---
we must be prepare to discuss and solve them .
