I use the wide character names for about three months with VC8 and after
applying a similar patch like Mark I'm very satisfied with the library!
Three items doesn't meet my needs:
As already reported in
narrow_path() doesn't work if short filename generation is disabled. As
a workaround I have fstream.hpp patched for using the non-standard wide
char fstream constructors in VC8 (Dinkumware library). Indeed this works
for VC8 only...
I would like to see a what() method in basic_filesystem_error. Ok, I
have seen the free function what() but what it's the rationale not
including it in the exception object?
The documentation is yet incomplete (for instance the convenience
functions are not documented I think).

Fixed in CVS. Test cases were also added to wide_test.cpp.
