Since UTF-16 is not compatible with ASCII, it does not make much
sense to have just a string encoded in UTF-16 and the rest of code in
ASCII. If UTF-16 is to be used, it would probably have to be specified
externally to the source.
IMHO there should be a way of specifying the encoding of the source
in the source, and they should be only ASCII-compatible encodings.
