Hi all

What is the current and future status of UTF8 vs UTF-16 in the haskell

I understand that currently Text uses UTF-16, and it is used generally
because of compatibility requirements in the Microsoft ecosystem, but that
there are movements afoot to move to a UTF8 only environment at some
unspecified future point.

The question arises as I ponder a pull request on haskell-lsp to switch to
a UTF-16 based library[1]
