boost filesystem supports wide characters, indeed.
But wide characters aren't Unicode. They're platform and locale
dependent. Cf any unix manual.

Personally I'd rather want filesystem to drop support for wide
characters and put real support for Unicode instead.
It could take strings it knows are in Unicode, and even if the target
system does not have Unicode support it could convert between encodings.
