       The MB_CUR_MAX macro defines an integer expression giving the maximum
       number of bytes needed to represent a single wide character in the
       current locale.  It is locale dependent and therefore not a compile-
       time constant.

       An integer in the range [1, MB_LEN_MAX].  The value 1 denotes
       traditional 8-bit encoded characters.
