RFE 4519026: (process) Process should support Unicode on Win NT Status

I'd like to ask what the status unicode support for executing
processes on Windows is.

Earlier this year there was a patch submitted to address this problem
( http://tinyurl.com/yl4jtv3 ) but the thread seems to have died
without getting the patch applied.

Looking at ProcessImpl_md.c it still calls CreateProcess.

The issue ( http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=4519026
) has been opened 8 years ago. What baffles me is how can an issue
that pretty much renders ProcessBuilder and Process useless on Windows
if there is a unicode character anywhere in executable path have
priority set to 4-Low.

Is there any chance that this could actually be fixed in 1.7?
