No.  If there is a codecvt<> involved (is there? I didn't look, 
I thought that was a filebuf<> thing) then showmanyc() should divide 
the number of bytes by the maximum character size, 
std::codecvt<>::max_length().  Remember it's returning an estimate,
a lower bound, and shouldn't be doing too much work.
