Porting CDE and Motif was the exact reason that those functions exist :)

That project is still quite alive and kicking, even if delayed a bit.
I have been meaning to finish up the wcs*() functions, and port the NLS
support from OpenBSD into Free.  I am eager to see that a general interest 
in this exists.  I have been meaning to subscribe to the i18n list, as I 
knew wcs*() would be brought up there sooner or later :)

My next message will be to subscribe to that list.

PS: IIRC the version at that URL has a typo in it where _t should become _r in
one of the functions.
