Actually having an option of turning off Unicode *does* make it harder
to use, because you end up coming across programs that have Unicode and
surprise you when they misbehave. And yes I saw that 90% of your
programs aren't intended to get out into the world. 90% is never meant
to leave the office. 90% of that does anyway.
I still don't get why strings being Unicode is such a problem for you.
Could you explain? I've only ever had problems with strings *not* being
Unicode, and I really don't understand what has you so hot under the collar.
