I have had a quick peek at the lua 4.1 sources (alpha, not beta) and it
seems to have L_CHAR as a possible define which if set to wchar might go
some way towards it. You may also have to define l_s(x) as L##x (assuming x
is a ""ed string) and there will be something similar to do with l_c(x) I

You may also need to define uchar(c) (how to unsign such a char)

Hope this helps,
