Eventually, probably not before the next release from my perspective though

On win32, cygwin has no wide character support, on linux I think it depends
upon the glibc version and it's setup, for some reason my linux install of
gcc3 doesn't enable wide character support even though it is present in the
library, I'm hoping gcc3.2 will fix this when I eventually get around to it.

Personally yes I would put those into separate tests, but it's up to you.
