No, I'm not doomed, because there *are* no other users.  Never will be.  
I thought I made that clear.

Many programming tasks do not go beyond the machine they were written on.

You seem to think I'm trying to rid the world of Unicode - I've stressed 
that I'm not.

I just think that a language should allow one to bypass Unicode handling 
easily *when it's not needed*.
