Supply an patch, to speed up the implementation.

But first the Delphi implementations should be explored, since the 
following looks not okay to me:

"StrLCopy copies a maximum MaxLen characters from Source to Dest, then 
adds a null terminator to Dest and returns Dest. The SizeOf standard 
function (Delphi) or the sizeof operator (C++) can be used to determine 
the MaxLen parameter. Usually, MaxLen equals SizeOf(Dest)-1."

The mix (or equivalence) of character and byte counts obviously is 
inappropriate for "wide" versions. Perhaps "sizeof" should read "Length"?
