I don't understand what the Japanese have to do here. This is about the
coding of wchar_t. As far as I know OpenBSD, Solaris, MacOS X and Windows
all support Unicode BMP code points inside wchar_t. What character encoding
they use in other places, be it Shift-JIS in Japan, is irrelevant.

I am not interested in adding bugs or feature regressions on _all_
platforms due to problems in C run-time libraries on _some_ operating
