Why do you need Unicode support in the kernel? The tables are a
lot of crap to stow in the kernel.
The Mac OS X filesystem API's are all still char*. What we do is
we treat char* strings as UTF8. Read Unicode from disk as UTF8 and
present that to userland. Higher-level toolbox calls deal with the
translation buisiness in user space.
