Wide Unicode build for Windows available somewhere?

    Hi there,

    I am trying to locate a windows binary of a recent python (2.4
    preferred, but not essential) with support for Unicode characters
    with values greater than 0x10000. I have tested the python.org
    binaries and those from Activestate, both give me a traceback on
    unichr(0x10000) and tell me its a "narrow" build.
    Any pointers appreciated.

    Wide unicode is currently not supported on Windows. A number of
    internal APIs (in particular for the registry, and for the "mbcs"
    codec) assume that sizeof(Py_UNICODE) is 2. Contributions are
    welcome.

    Even with that fixed, Pythonwin would still need a major rework
    to support wide Unicode.

    Regards,
    Martin
