It does make a big difference though where friends of the wide char
want their wchar_t based version of Lua. Anybody?
I've done an awful lot of work with international character sets, and
I personally consider any encoding of Unicode other than UTF-8 to be
obsolete. Looking at most other modern (i.e. not held back by
backwards compatibility, e.g. Windows) users of Unicode, their
authors appear to feel similarly.
