Just one more thing. This situation is like Windows NT vs. Linux.
Windows engineers have put a large effort to implement the
micro-kernel paradigm, focusing on i.a. driver - kernel API. While
Linus, as kernel evolved, was changing the APIs because he could patch
source tree. Thus, he could fix past mistakes. So we now have a better
C with those new unicode glyphs, I've used them explicitly in my
project giturl and I can tell that C ecosystem will last longer thanks
to those upgrades. But that are bungee jumps hehe.

Best regards,
