      Description

      We have recently added full Unicode name support to Windows NT/2000 filesystem.

      To make Java completely Unicode-aware on NT we need to

      1) Modify System properties initialization code and all other places
      where Windows calls are used to use wide-char calls on NT.

      2) Modify java, javac etc. to be able to use Unicode in classpath and other command line arguments.
