This is all information that is already on the blogs since July. Note that
Tcharacter is a sealed class, something that FPC doesn't support yet.

The whole tencoding/tcharacter is a bastard-class stuff seems to be out of .NET
compatibility (as noted in the document), but Borland changed course of its
.NET efforts after Tiburon. Sigh.
