Haskell String type isn't UTF-8 encoded. it's [Char] where Char is in
UCS-4 aka UTF-32 :)

That's not quite correct. [Char] is a sequence of Unicode code points, UTF-32 is one possible encoding of those code points. The difference is similar to the one between an integer an e.g. its string representation.
