Isn't UCS-2 the old 16-bit Unicode representation? So that converting
from ASCII simply involves interspersing zero-bytes? And converting
from a String (of Unicode codepoints from a subset of UCS-2), can be
done with a divMod operation. So if you can generate the correct
string of bytes this way, withCString should work, shouldn't it?
If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
