I should have been more specific.  YES win32 has a codepage translation
facility.  That native library will not convert partial-content (e.g.,
when the destination string overflows, it will not report the partial
conversion results.)

There is a COM based component which will perform partial content
translation - but the overhead of writing this as a COM consumer
was less than appealing.
