Okay. Yesterday, I wrote a simple (yet useful) TCP service with Rust, with only the standard library, in about an hour.

Today, I want to write ten dozen things on my TODO list in Rust. And I’m an emphatic C++ programmer.

It seems to be a lot easier to use UTF-16 as an internal representation for strings in a program if you don't bother to use the C++ std::string data type at all.

Am I missing something, or is it seriously easier to throw the STL away and just have a damned Unicode string type?
