I'm concerned with whether, after patching it to work with utf8 wide
characters, it will still function as before, with standard ascii?
Will I be able to use it still, or will it only work for asian text,
after the patches?

I hope so. The patches from the other libslang will need to be
ported to it. Again, will that be compatible with standard ASCII
