This depends on the vendor of your orb. Visigenic's visibroker 3.0 ORB has
implemented the extension to Corba which support wchar_t (wstring) as a data
type. This allows you to pass Unicode through the API's, and gives you
compatibility with the Java String type which is also Unicode. I'm not sure
what the other ORB vendors are doing.
