Ad 1: You are being too practical with this condition. My view is that the
conversion IS performed, regardless of what the char string contains.
Ad 2: You are being too theoretical with this condition. I don't see what
else one would put in wchar_t (when speaking of Unicode). I could be wrong,
and if so, I'd be glad to hear what sorts of things people use wchar_t for.
Speaking of Unicode, of course.
