Er, sort of.  I _do_ advocate std::wstring, but that's independent of the
point I was making here.  I can live with wchar_t* if the consensus is that
std::wstring is either too slow or too poorly supported.

What I'd find difficult is a typedef SAXChar which could be "unsigned
short", because that would be a real bore to code to.
std::basic_string<SAXChar> would be just as bad.
