I don't understand. You suggested in a previous message that you preferred
unicode16 to unicode32. glibc's wchar_t is 4 bytes (at least on my RH
6.2 i386 it is). So do you like whcar_t or no?

Nonetheless, that library looks interesting. What is the benifit to
whcar_t though? Is it just space requirements because they use a 16
bit Uchar?

And is all of this 16bit vs. 32bit stuff really that big of a
deal? Something like an SMB server doesn't use strings enough to warrent
concern does it? Basically, we're talking about path names, username,
and a few other trivialities riht?
