IMO there exists no need for separate libraries. The A and W versions of
WinAPI functions are (? can be) overloaded, so that it's simply up to
the coder to provide the appropriately typed parameters.

You can define types wchar_t etc. and set these to AnsiChar or WideChar,
as desired.

Did I miss something?
