I hadn't really thought through that before.  At any rate, if we go this way I 
would probably create a TagLib::FileName class that has constructors for char 
* and wchar * so that we'd be insulted from such things in the future and add 
that rather than const wchar * constructors.


Had this been an actual emergency, we would have fled in terror, and you would 
not have been informed.
