UNICODE not required in 1.3

I just built a new server using Ice 1.3 and I'm happy to find out that I doesn't require unicode anymore.

Thanks for allowing this. :)

    The use of Microsoft's Unicode libraries is now optional. However, you should convert each string to UTF-8 before sending such string, otherwise an Ice for C++ application cannot talk to Ice for Java, because Java is all Unicode.

    Ice for C++ includes utility functions to convert Unicode in UTF-16 from and to UTF-8. If you use any other encoding, you should write a converter for such encoding.
