[Mono-list] A couple of questions...

Since I wrote the String class, I guess it's appropriate for me to

Yes, Mono uses Unicode 16 (which is what the spec calls for).

As for your first question:

I don't see why not. Obviously we want to be portable, and since we are
starting off in the Win32 environment, we might as well keep that code
up to date throughout development.

Also, since we are writing the C# classes in C#, portability shouldn't
be all that complicated (except for a little bit here and there that we
need to use PInvoke for).
