Then the other way around, a new widestring which is reference counted
on all platforms for people like, me who count on cross platform
portability. So i can write
mywidestring = FPCwidestring;
mywidestring = widestring;
and exchange 'widestring' by 'mywidestring' 10'000 times...
In most times i use widestrings and not ansistrings and i estimate
the performance gain of the FPC widestrings over the not reference
counted delphi strings.
