Of course its possible without a code table (and maybe even desirable)
to calculate the length of an UTF-8 String in terms of Unicode
Characters rather than in terms of bytes. But to do this the compiler
would need to know if in this place the string is an UTF8String or an
ANSIString. I don't know if those different types are predefined.
Maybe we will need to wait for this comfort until the "New Derlphi
String" implementation (right now only existing in the svn) is up to speed.
