Hello, FPC developers

Any hints on these bugs?
http://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=15642 // patch proposed to
workaround RTL limitation in LCL

This is mostly concern of Windows OS. Moders Unix doesn't have the
problem, usually having UTF8 as their's Ansi codepage.

Would it be possible to fix the problem in RTL? by adding
UnicodeString (WideString) version of file operation functions?
Ant other "simplier" way than switching compiler itself to Unicode or
other special string type?
