@unnali I wanted to leave the impression that you can never be too sure what you're going to get in a string, so I'm glad to hear it was unsettling :)

@cthom06 Yeah, you're right, even the utf8 package itself is like a very thin abstraction layer for using strings as []rune. Putting Unicode in strings and assuming the best is an easy pitfall though, one that took me, being new to Go, slightly by surprise!
