I thought I'd get my limited review in early.

Simple and therefore good.

I'm not qualified in this domain, but the code is more than mature, so I
think it's safe to assume that all the issues are ironed out.

> - What is your evaluation of the documentation?

Good, a clear and short exposition of the problem and the solutions that
this library provides. Simple examples to get you up and running in 10
minutes. It adheres to Robert's requirements for I library, I would say.

Very usefull, it solves a complex (unicode) issue in an easy (as in, forget
about it) and transparent way.

I have been using this library for years (5-6 maybe, I'm guessing here,
it's too long ago with VS2008-VS2015, Clang-3.8-Clang-4.0, ICC-9-ICC13).
No, I never have had problems with it and I already integrate the building
of this library in the boost build processs (since boost 1.54 approx.). In
it's current form it already builds without issue (with bjam) after
dropping the code in the right spot in the boost source-tree.

I obviously did in the past and just started using it.

No, that's why I need the library.

YES, not a doubt in my mind and my thanks and appreciation go to Artyom
