    Even after system updates. The support does not exist in either Win95 Gold
    or Win95 OSR2.

    This has nothing to with ACPs, OEMCPs, FAT, FAT32, networking, security,
    instability, or any of the myriad of issues you raised here -- I just looked
    at the source code and it does not exist in the Win9x tree until Window 98.

    I can keep correcting mis-statements you make about this fact if its
    important to you, but we should probably take it off the Unicode List at
    that point.
