The short answer is no.  Strings are just byte sequences, which is ok
if your input and output codings are the same, but needs an add-on if
you have to convert.

I did some bits for my charting program, converting to and from utf8
using the libc iconv() stuff (plus some ascii-only fallbacks).  You
could also run the iconv command-line program from within guile if you
don't want C code, and only have a few bits to convert.
