Welcome! I dont think it matters from a performance point of view. From
my reading of documentation regarding Windows NT it seems they have
abut a 20% performance hit on the ASCII calls vs the Unicode calls. I
think that they implement both ASCII and Unicode rather than have ASCII
call the unicode functions. (This is due to the fact that they had a
semi-share source base with Win9x). Most of Wine just has the A
function call the W function so I would follow this standard. It will
reduce code duplication and prob'l lessen bugs.
