#10952: program_options in wchar_t
 Reporter: gast128@… | Owner: vladimir_prus
     Type: Feature Requests | Status: new
Milestone: To Be Determined | Component: program_options
  Version: Boost 1.57.0 | Severity: Problem
 Keywords: wchar_t |
 In Visual Studio 2013, ansi MFC builds are deprecated. More products will
 have to convert to wchar_t. I am aware that wchar_t is not the best
 Unicode representation, but it is quite dominant on Windows platforms.
 Some program_options parts however are bound to hard code ansi strings.
 For example the options_description uses std::string and char*:

 po::options_description desc("Allowed options");

 std::wcout << desc; //error (actual use is a std::wofstream)

 Can't this just made complete template based on char type?
