I understand they could not do it differently (other than just providing 
no Unicode support at all), maybe as there is no automatic type 
conversion support with FPC (e.g. ANSIString<->UTF8String).

As the current version is not very satisfying I do hope for a change, 
but I also do understand that the Lazarus team will wait for what the 
next FPC version offers on that behalf.
