OK, now I'm confused. I was thinking (incorrectly) that you were
talking about changing the multibyte encoding, which of course is
saved on disk all over the place. Changing the wchar encoding is a
different kettle of fish, and I have no idea what that would or would
not break. But I don't see why we'd want to do such a thing. We just
need to make the MB->WCHAR and WCHAR->MB transformations mirror images
of each other; why is that hard?
