Unicode-UTF8 (0.61) *****

This offers functions "decode_utf8" and "encode_utf8" which do the same thing but are very surprisingly faster (about ten times faster) than the same functions from the core module Encode. If you need to do a lot of converting to and from Unicode UTF-8 this is a better choice than Encode.

I also use the "valid_utf8" function from this module for a file server which serves files from the disc, to check what kind of character set the file might have before sending it to the browser.
