One last comment that might help.
The idea here is that this is a low level API. Lower level than, say,
the WebKit API. It's not built on top of the platform APIs like AppKit
on Mac OS X. The idea is that it's potentially independent of WebKit.
That's a good argument for having it match the low level platform and
not be built on top of, say, AppKit or Qt. That extends even to things
like this type.
I guess the whole wchar_t thing is a snafu, though, because we
normally would not want a type that is different on different
platforms. Maybe we should dump the idea of using wchar_t on Windows
We were really following ICU's lead here -- ICU being another low
level library not built on top of a framework like Qt or AppKit.
