There are a number of "rev" libraries (revXML, revZIP, perhaps others)
that are not fully Unicode compatible.
https://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=18942 (revXML, revZIP)
... and possibly others. There are no work-arounds for not being Unicode
compatible (at least none I know of). In my opinion, bugs with no
work-around should be among LC's higher priorities for bug fixes.
