This is a solvable problem in C++20 due to the adoption of P0732. See
the "Emulate C++17 u8 literals" section of P1423R2
for an example. Note that gcc's implementation of P0732 currently has a
defect that prevents this technique being used. See
https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=88095. A patch has been
proposed, but I haven't tried it yet.
