Detailed Description

This is a temporary class used to work with OIIO::ustring. The reason for this is that some of our 3rd parties use those ustring's, but they are designed in a way that makes them extremely costly to create in a multithreaded context. To fix this, we need to bake those string to avoid creating them at runtime. This class allows us to do just that, and is reinterpretable into a OIIO::ustring

So wherever we have to deal with OpenImageIO's ustrings, use this instead, and cast it when needed. For instance:

``` UniqueString string(CoreString("some_string")); some_function_using_oiio_ustrings(reinterpret_cast<const OIIO::ustring&>(string)); ```
