Good point, but sorry, this is an proof that the macro approach is more

The RTTI feature can the data only give in one format, say it delivers
them as pchar to you. And I have shortstrings in my list.
The format the data is retrieved by the rtti decides how I have to
store it if you want to prevent the double storage of the data.
