It would be great to have this functionality in Lua 5.2.
Why?  Lua shouldn't be infected with this crap.
LuaPlus's wide string support has, among other things, been used to ship a number of commercial console games (Xbox and others) to in Far Eastern languages.

So should Lua be infected with this world-wide language enabling "crap"?  That's not my call.  Unicode is far more than just 16-bit characters, but having those 16-bit characters was sufficient to ship properly localized string tables.

FWIW, I just simply leave the #defines off the majority of the time.
