   Hello guys,

I am working on updated version of HDirect and now I
am going to use CWString API to marshal (wchar_t *)
type to String. I found some inconsistencies in the
  - castCWcharToChar and castCharToCWchar functions
are defined only for Posix systems and they aren't
exported. In the same time castCCharToChar and
castCharToCChar have the same meaning and they are
defined and exported on all platforms.
  - CWchar type looks a little bit strange compared to
CChar, CString and CWString types. In my opinion
CWChar looks more consistent. 

Since the CWString API isn't released in previous GHC
releases I think now is the time to fix that. Any
