Addresses JP 73
It is a problem from C++98, fstream cannot appoint a filename of wide character string(const wchar_t and const wstring&).
Add interface corresponding to wchar_t, char16_t and char32_t.

I suggest to mark this issue as NAD Future with the intend to solve the issue with a single file path c'tor template assuming a provision of a TR2 filesystem library.
[ 2009 Santa Cruz: ]
NAD Future. This is a duplicate of 454.
[LEWG Kona 2017]
Recommend NAD: Needs a paper. Recommend providing overload that takes filesystem::path. Note that there are other similar issues elsewhere in the library, for example basic_filebuf. Handled by another issue.
Resolved by the adoption of 2676.
