ATm, we don't use Unicode on Win32. So there's no stopper.

wc_str is not usable. Code using it simply won't compile.

wxString::wc_str() which is the only way to extract C strings from
wxWidgets 2.6.x in a way that actually works... on Linux. mb_str()
returns garbage on Linux.
Also, given VLC now runs with UTF-8 internally, it is much more
efficient to extract Unicode from wxWidgets, and convert between UTF-32
and UTF-8, than convert between the locale country-dependant encoding
