It may also just show that Wine wants to be compatible with existing sources
that use <tchar.h>, it doesn't necessarily say anything about the internal use
of it or whether new applications should employ it.

AFAIK TCHARs were devised quite a while ago to allow compilation of a single
codebase for both ANSI (ie Win9x) and Unicode (ie WinNT) APIs. If you know
you'll run on a platform that thoroughly supports Unicode, there's just no point
in carrying around the TCHAR baggage. Make life for you and everyone else easier
and give an example how to write a proper Unicode (and only Unicode) application.
