I had hoped that using the dynamically encoded string type nearly
everywhere would allow for a great lot of not OS-specific code in the
VCL (and LCL) without the need for excessive conversions maintaining the
systems' coding (UTF-16 or UTF-8) in and out with GUI-centric user code.
I thought this would have been the main reason for introducing the
additional complexity of the dynamically encoded string type.
