Quick glance on the boost::filesystem::v3::basic_filebuf
There is a problem with MinGW implementation. libstdc++ (as according
to standard does not support opening files with wide characters
so as I can see you will not be able to open even wide path
with boost::filesystem::ifstream on MinGW platform.
Correct me if I wrong or missed something.
(Not talking about Cygwin that has native UTF-8 support)
