Given that std::getenv returns a char*, I think the library should work with std::string, although we did discuss supporting std::wstring using templates. Whether std::string is encoded in ASCII or UTF8 would be an OS specific thing I imagine.

Someone with more experience with character encodings might want to weigh in here.
