[unixODBC-dev] Unicode support

Another question Nick. I was up on the unixodbc website, and for the 2.0.9 release , it says the following was fixed:
- Add build time option to select wchar_t UNICODE (4 bytes) as opposed to signed short UNICODE (2 byte)

I believe we build unixODBC ourselves. Does this mean that I could actually build unixODBC on unix boxes for the different sizes of wchar_t on unix v/s windows? And this would require no code changes on my part? And I could use wchar_t's the way it is being used now?

Please clarify.
