Well, given that std::basic_string's support for Unicode is lacking, I would
consider using custom string class an advantage of those libraries. Hey,
you can't even convert std::string to std::wstring, and you can't construct
std::wstring from char*. Can you convert std::wstring to any of Unicode's
normalization forms? How portable is reading of std::wstring from a file
with specific 8-bit encoding?
