Ok, so thats done.

What about, for a next step, simply the introduction of the thunk layer 
- with only A calls used by it. No Unicode, no length changes. ?

Thats probably the most verbose change, with the least variety in 
approach. From there on in we can debate the relative merits of 
path_conv state versus IOThunkState and the like without a huge patch in 
the wings.
