Hello, FPC developers' list

Seems time has come to start think of support for utf8string type in 
free pascal. We need it fot unicode in LCL.

I searched compiler code to look how WideString is handled and I want to 
ask about utf8string handling. Should it be the same way? So I can 
copy-paste most of WideString code (for example: tokens.pas add 
_CUSTRING, _CUCHAR; symconst.pas add st_utf8string; and similar things 
in other places).

Best regards,
Paul Ishenin.
