Nice thread - as always when unicode handling is brought up :)

There should really be a decision and feature list as soon as possible 
so the implementation can go on. There is really no need to spend a year 
on these decisions.

Proper unicode handling strategy/implementation with backward and Delphi 
compatibility as well as a useable Lazarus debugger (Property watch, CPU 
window, etc.) should be the #1 priority now.
