No, I need to change all internals and windows api to use wide strings
instead of narrow ones. I guess I could use boost::filesystem::path or
similar instead of raw strings (after all, named objects use something
similar to paths), but I also need to be backwards compatible and write
some maintainable code, supporting also wide strings in Unix platforms.
Suggestions welcome.
