I would definitely prefer if the interface is either wide or standard
character-based on every operating system the library is supported on.
Standard characters seem to be a natural choice then if a decision between
the two types has to be made. Looking at the entire Boost distribution
this also seems to be more consistent as I know for example that
Boost.Interprocess only works with standard characters, too.

By the way, this reminds me of another question: Is there any reason why
const char* is used and not std::string where strings are expected?
