Every C++ runtime implementation, every C++ standard library
implementation and other Boost libraries on Windows assume that 8-bit
char strings are encoded using the local ANSI codepage. While this is
not ideal, it is at least consistent. The confusion arives from
unilaterally changing one library to interpret 8-bit strings
