I have updated the Win32 TODO item:

        o Add support for Unicode

          To fix this, the data needs to be converted to/from UTF16/UTF8
          so the Win32 wcscoll() can be used, and perhaps other functions
          like towupper().  However, UTF8 already works with normal
          locales but provides no ordering or character set classes.
