No, I was not aware of that. Thanks for the link.

There doesn't seem to be any problems associated with a possible unicode
library, and that C library being included into the C++ standard. It
basically does a lot of the low-level unicode stuff that I am currently
doing by hand, so it would probably be more of a blessing than a curse if it
got included into standard C++.
