ValidUTF8String and Utf8EscapeControlChars are global functions.
Nothing object oriented there. :)

Looking at the code, ValidUTF8String was first renamed + deprecated
and then removed for a reason. The name is misleading. Sounds like it
checks the validity of a string while actually it escapes control
chars. The new name is good and descriptive.
