Seriously, I think it's slightly different: End users don't want
Unicode; they should not care. Software developers become scared
easily when confronted with Unicode. However, considering the
alternatives (preserving the original encoding all the time, and
having to combine strings in different encodings), Unicode does
simplify processing, IMO.
