 Yep, we can count multibyte chars (as "words") easily. The problem is
 which multibyte chars to exclude (emoji, etc.) and how to make it as fast
 as possible. A nested loop doesn't seem that fast, but some speed tests
 would be needed anyway :)

 Also, only certain multibyte char ranges should be counted as words. This
 will make it possible to count "mixed" content, for example Chinese +
 English in the same post.
