The Wakaba and Kareha support thread, part 3 (535)

The charset situation in Wakaba is a confusing mess. IIRC, the wrapper functions are either used to retain compatibility with Perl 5.6, or to retrieve Unicode data from a non-Unicode database, or both. Note how the utf8 pragma isn't used anywhere in the script, while the encoding pragma is used sparsely.

It's been a few years since I've done anything with Wakaba, but I recall having to use get_decoded_hashref() or its arrayref counterpart every time I wanted to retrieve text that might contain Unicode.
