[Freeswitch-dev] FS's string encoding - valid UTF-8?

Well for instance data from SIP messages getting stuck into event headers/variables.

Less critically, from XML files – is the XML reader actually compliant (rejecting invalid sequences)?

If it receives them from itself?  We do very little to do with utf8 encoding in fs.  If it passes through a char * its likely fine if its fine on the other side.

Does FS enforce UTF-8 anywhere? I am writing a new interop module and need to know if handling non-UTF-8 char*s is a requirement. I’m thinking particularly from SIP messages and other external user inputs.

In other words, if a FS ever receives a non-UTF-8 string from FS, is that automatically a bug in FS? Or considered within acceptable behaviour?
