This is true of course,
But does that really suggest taking the effort to support other Unicode
The conversion is done only when entering and exiting the OS / GUI
framework calls. I understand this does not happen too often.
Of course it is really nice to provide support for any Unicode encoding,
but I don't think it does not harm to use UTF-16 as a default.
