Is there any UTF-8 supporting extensions available after upgrade to Mediawiki's LUA sandbox?

I mean something mentioned in this article

currently a few function for utf8 strings are available:

PGC.UTF8SubStr(string,start,length )
start is counted from 1, currently there is a bug for negative start (counting from the end of string)
if length is not specified, entire rest of string is returned


currently there is no function for count the number of characters of the utf8 string, however you can easely define it.

function UTF8Len(str)
  return str:gsub("[\128-\191]", "" ):len()

added later:
now there is official PGC function
