Hi James,

Yeah I would like that, thanks for suggesting :)
I'll try and do a search on unicode functions and stuff but -- well, you 
have seen more of wine specific details ...

Also, I think it'd be smart to put something like that online (like.. 
linking from the janitorial page to that one?)
By the way... Is there some kind of overview of what parts is already 
being worked on; we don't want to do double work right ;)
