Isn't the real problem where we want to do
UT_UCSChar c = 0x10000;
etc. (which is probably the case at the moment)? Making the jump to 32 bit
is probably a lot saner & safer than maintaining both 16 & 32-bit.

It's getting them wrong that is living, getting them wrong and wrong and
wrong and then, on careful reconsideration, getting them wrong again.
That's how we know we're alive: we're wrong.
