 There are two perspectives to consider at this issue.

 * As a very specific tweak to the current interface.

 * As a further indication that there should be a single path type that can
 handle both wide and narrow types. Peter Dimov suggested that once, and I
 keep turning over in my mind how it could be accomplished. With C++0x
 supplying two new character types, the need becomes more pressing. I still
 don't want to invent a solution that applies only to filesystem paths;
 there is a general need for strings that can cope with multiple character
 types and encodings.
