Alexandre, one time you were saying than W and A
functions can't be tested by the same code because
they are completely different. 
Now you are saying that we don't need to test W
function because they are no more than conversion to
ASCII, calling A function, converting results back to
Unicode and it is sufficient to test A function and
check the conversions.

Using TCHAR insures that A and W functions have the
same behaviour.
Why you are against using the same code for this and
using encoding-specific code to check the differences?
