That's probably the easiest way out, yes. Unicode command line parameters 
work just fine anyway, the only difference is that users of libavformat 
have to enter data in the native multi-byte charset, instead of utf8.

As a side note, WinCE actually is quite unicode-centered and lack almost 
all of the non-unicode versions of functions. I guess that's one of the 
reasons that not all things exist as they do on the desktop.
