i'm trying to understand how best to approach unicode representations.
i am told the pep-0261 is the standard for python.
it was not clear what mechanism it entails for access to os-level text
management facilities on the order of osx's "apple type services for unicode
imaging". i looked through the mac extensions, but did not discern anything
relevant. can anyone point me to code in wide and narrow builds which uses
such os-level facilities. i was given a reference which appeared to concern
windows' file names, but that, as is the case with direct stream codecs, is
primarly a static situation.
i would also be interested to hear if there have been any data collected on
preponderance of wide builds, and on the consequences in those installations
for storage and algorithm efficiency.
