We do have a good design for unicode support in Samba,
we intend to convert all internal character handling to
2 byte UCS2 unicode, converting to UTF8 when interfacing
with UNIX and to DOS codepage when interfacing with non
unicode clients.

I started a branch to implement this (and much of the
underlying functions are done) - however, the hard part
is the entire conversion of all of Samba - it needs a
rather quiet tree to do this - one we haven't had much
of late :-).


Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
