    Well, I'm a software engineer, and I would just like to say that I agree with
    everything Ken has said on this thread.

    In particular, I have played around with writing code-generators, of the ilk
    which Ken mentioned in another post on this thread, and I /never/ assumed that
    all (or indeed, any) generated codepoints would be 16-bits wide. That would be
    a really dumb thing to do. Why is anyone even mentioning this as a possibility?

    Unicode should not pander to bad programmers. Just sack the lot of them, and
    then employ people who do things properly!

    Anything more or less than that is just bad software engineering.
