I did not find a way to set "none utf8 mode" with Lazarus, so that I 
just can use ANSIString (and WideString) like I did in the previous version.

Did I miss this option ?

If it exists, why not set same as default so that it works for someone 
ignoring Unicode.

(But I suppose this is prevented by the UTF8API of LCL and the FPC not 
being able to tell ANSIString from UTF8String. )
