It's necessary to support all of Unicode and not just the BMP.

On midipix you still have all the raw Windows API functions that need
UTF-16 "WCHAR" arrays as input, so you can convert manually to WCHAR
(which happens to also match the standard C type char16_t) and call
them. But there's also a wrapper layer that lets you pass UTF-8
strings to WinAPI wrappers, so you never have to deal with wchar_t or
WCHAR at all. I don't know all the details but you could ask on
