I apologize for hijacking the thread, but I really do feel it is
useful to have wide character string support for my work within the
games industry. For applications, wide characters may be worthless.
Our games use UTF-8, but user-visible strings come from what are
essentially external resources -- Lua code has to look them anyway up
so they can be localized.
My understanding is that UCS-2 doesn't support surrogates. I don't
think Microsoft's C runtime wide character library supports them
either. I could be wrong.
Again, this is why wide character support seems like the wrong idea --
it is not 21st century Unicode.
