What's ugly is that you don't compile what you write. This is the most
sure recipe to make sure the code doesn't compile. People will test
code in ASCII mode, and when some poor soul (like me ;-) tries to
compile in Unicode mode to run regression tests it won't work because
nobody ever tried to compile it that way. Or worse it will compile but
not do what was intended because someone has been mixing char and
tchar or whatever.

xxxA and xxxW are different functions (and in fact do not necessarily
behave the same way for all inputs), and they need to be tested
