I was trying to the other way, that getting musl can be compiled with msvc.
For easily debugging on win32 and preserve the wchar_t  on Win32.

I know the advantage of wchar_t to be 32bit, but I think this would be
Cause 16 bit wchar_t doesn't not good for Linux, but also 32bit
wchar_t doesn't good for
We should leave the all of Unicode to the work of char32_t. That's my design.
