PLT doesn’t support Unicode (yet)

I’ve been thinking of dabbling in PLT Scheme
since it seems to be one of the nicer Schemes however it seems that it
does not support Unicode. Bummer. This puts a damper on trying to use it
seriously for awhile.

Thanks to 80/20 for pointing this out to me

    Actually, I think there’s a version in CVS that will support most of Unicode, though Matthew Flatt’s explanation was kind of strange. I think that the issue is the old sizeof(char) vs. sizeof(byte), i.e. the length of a string may not match the number of bytes in it.
