Boost :

I just started using boost recently and it seems excellent so far.

One of the first classes I started using is filesystem::path, with the
intention to use it portably on Windows, OS X, and Linux.

On Windows and OS X, you can work with paths in Unicode. Presumably
Linux still works with multi-byte characters.

Is there progres toward a wchar_t-aware path?

Is there an existing strategy for storing my Unicode Windows/Mac paths
as UTF-8 with the existing path? I notice the existing posix checks
would fail horribly in this case. Is a UTF-8 checker in order?
