Are you aware of the Unicode Technical Report (TR) being prepared by the C
committee? See

While there is no guarantee, it is a definite possibility that the C++
committee will use this C TR as part of Unicode support in C++. Because
this TR is so limited in scope (it just has a few conversion functions),
that probably won't cause problems for a C++ Unicode library, but you
should still be aware of the data types introduced.
