    I know at least one usage: in Win32, the WM_UNICHAR message passes a UTF-32 code point as a parameter.

    Is anyone aware of UTF-32 actually being used as a storage and
    interchange format, other than in test cases to prove that an editor or
    other tool supports it?

    I'm not looking for a long discussion about whether it should or should
    not be used, whether its simplicity outweighs its inefficiency or vice
    versa. I just want to know if anyone's actually seen it in the wild. I
    have not.
