[fpc-devel] Unicode support (again)

Of course Lazarus' LCL would be needed to be recompiled according to the 
way the user wants to handle "String", as calling for conversion with 
any LCL in and out transfer is not a good idea. Maybe the LCL could 
define a type "LCLString" that can be set when compiling it.

Internally I suppose the LCL uses WideString to access the Windows API 
and UTF8String to access GTK, so it depends on the Platform if a 
conversion is necessary, anyway.
