I can see this is one of those clashes of philosophy that probably can't
be resolved through a Usenet discussion. I think that people hacking on
what they like, for fun, should have whatever attitude they like! But I
don't expect you to agree.

In general, I think XML has really done an excellent job in bringing
Unicode into the mainstream of computer science. Java's native Unicode
support also helped to push other languages in the right direction.
Microsoft has even been a positive force in this direction. As one of
the main Unicode-heads at my company, I see the glass as 3/4 full.
