well... No, I'm not particularly satisfied with UTF-16 -- I mean
I am not satisfied with Unicode. For instance, I don't like its
combining characters. Lots of experts spent great amount of time on
it, so I guess combining char is really necessary for Unicode.
But I still don't like it. And supporting Unicode means that you
suddenly need to care about the languagess you don't really care.

What do you mean by "anything specific" and "apple's utf-16"?
Are you talking about CFString?  (I do not like it.)
