"Many Unix vendors are using UCS-4 as a synonym to Unicode .." Could
somebody clarify this for me? In UCS-4 isn't every character code
32 bits long while in Unicode all BMP codes are 16 bits long and only
characters from plane 1 have 32 bits--those using what I regard as the
"inner tube bulge" technique?
