I formed the impression that all of the UCS-4 and surrogate work was
for the goal of supporting ISO 10646 (or whatever the number is -- you
know, the 31-bit character set), so everything is written with that
assumption.  Presumably that's wrong.  Is ISO 10646 on the roadmap at
this point, or is it completely irrelevant?  

Your other corrections will get applied; thanks!
