That hotfix didn't allow reading a file, so disabling the non-working 
file operations would have been better.

While we removed non-unicode builds for win32 a long time ago, I'm not 
opposed to supporting it in general. If you contribute some working code 
  (which would either mean adding a utf handling portion for non-unicode 
in utffile or disable unicode file operations throughout the app), 
you're welcome.
