This is neither backwards compatible, nor nice, nor fast nor small :(

I agree !!!!
But for future compatibility it would be nice if FPC/Lazarus could 
provide a _mode_ that allows for writing D2009 compatible code.

(You might also take a look at the string handling in Delphi-Prism which 
I believe is the way Embarcadero will be going in the future and where 
FPC/Lazarus is not sensibly / necessarily / easily / likely following. )
