I don't know whether UTF-7 is dead.
But, I feel it difficult to implement UTF-7.

According to another information,
Microsoft supports UTF-7 under Win32 API.

For example, the API "WideCharToMultiByte" has an option that converts
UCS-2 (or UTF-16?) into UTF-7, which is called "CP_UTF7".

It is a good news for us, Japanese.
