I'm worried about some of the modifications done to the UTF-8 patch. In 
commit 2199d086921eb37d249cae0731f334556ec6209d #ifdef checks were 
changed from specific FLAC__STRINGS_IN_UTF8 to generic _WIN32 and the 
specific defines were later removed in commit 

The reason I had them this way is that FLAC API has public functions 
that work with filenames. Default compile options for FLAC would be 
unaffected and existing programs that rely on ANSI filenames would 
continue to work. The new configuration option "Release (UTF-8)" was 
meant to isolate the changes so that only official bundled frontends 
that know about the changes would use them.
