[cfe-dev] [PATCH] C++0x unicode string and character literals now with test cases

As far as the const conversion for the new string literal types, gcc
4.5.2 allows it and throws a warning. Looks like the standard may
consider these cases to be illegal now instead of deprecated for even
the old cases.

Google found this page which documents discussion on this topic. Look
for "693. New string types and deprecated conversion "
