I believe character encoding is trying to generate those object files
for bundling with the extension, but not in a good way.

Is tricky the way they decided to organize it, will have a better look
when time allows.

For the record, windows has a unicode support, but I believe they are
doing everything by hand. Let's see.

I wonder if with a few changes we can make this work with
rake-compiler and see cross-compilation of it.
