[sword-devel] Win32 FileMgr Subclass

I've just committed the last bit for fixing the WIN32 Unicode issues.  
If anyone can try compiling and running Xiphos without the Xiphos patch 
or any other projects for Windows, and let me know if things work for 
them in folders which include Unicode character, I would appreciate it.  
I've tested BibleCS and it now works with a SWORD_PATH defined to 
/books/χαρις.  I've tested using and installing modules in this 
configuration and believe all the bugs are squashed, but I would love 
confirmation from other projects.

Thanks for any feedback,
