Legacy Issue Number: 1111
Summary: With regard to the character encoding issue.
This is not just a problem with Wchar, and Wstring, it can happen
with char and string as well. Multibyte encodings are used for
normal strings in the enhanced IDL as well as for
I think the problem is in the definition of char. For interop, the char type could be either:
1) restricted to a syntactic thing which can only be used with single byte encodings, or
2) we need to bite the bullet and make the encoding for char a sequence
of bytes if a multibyte encoding is chosen.
