Re: Changing WCHAR_TYPE from "long int" to "int"?

Hrm.  You might be right.  I was thinking that would be correct though.
AFAICT from reading the c++ standard, it doesn't care about the size of
wchar_t as long as it is large enough to hold the values from the
supported locales.

Perhaps some c++ expert could help with this a bit?  Benjamin is there a
problem if wchar_t becomes 64-bits?
