Writing your code with the assumption that you're dealing with BMP-
only is nonetheless still a bad idea, since the day will inevitably
come when you want to re-use it in a situation where the assumption is
false. Best to write for Unicode with as much generality as possible
from the get-go rather than having to rewrite later.
