Indeed that could work. But the operator overloading would need to
override the widestring managed. Actually it will be a bit confuse to
have 2 methods to change the assignments: the widestring manager and
the operator overloading.

We also need a {$ to set which string type "string" should be.

And then we need a set of RTL routines using utf8string, but Lazarus
developers/users can write them after the other parts are working.
