OTOH, if you are targeting any other platform in addition to Windows,
it probably makes more sense to adopt UTF-8 throughout your program
and convert to UTF-16 before calling Windows functions.

Way offtopic, I also find path/wpath problematic. In my mind, their
invariant doesn't differ enough from that of string/wstring to justify
coupling my interfaces with boost::filesystem. So I use UTF-8
string/char const * in my code on all platforms, and use
boost::filesystem as an implementation detail, through wrappers that
take UTF-8 strings.
