Sure, <tchar.h> is not designed to be used "internally" in Wine. But
the point is,
I would like to maintain Winefile such, that it isn't constraint to
being used in Wine
only. For example it is currently also present in ReactOS. The idea is to allow
compiling it in ANSI mode for that cases, that don't provide or need Unicode.
Win 9x systems don't provide Unicode functions. Embedded systems don't
have available much memory resources, so they try to spare as much memory
as possible. Currently there isn't yet a ReactOS port for such environments.
But why not prepare for such a situation yet now?
