Which is rather understandable (as several a long winding discussion in 
this forum showed). FPC is always eager to provide as full Delphi 
compatibility as possible, and the Delphi Unicode support is not very 
"nice". "Decent" Unicode is an extremely complex issue, anyway (trying 
to provide as well user friendly usage, and and versatility, and good 
backwards compatibility, and good portability, and good performance). If 
necessary compatibility to the seemingly abysmal current Delphi and the 
necessity to reuse the code of the existing (seemingly rather good) 
implementation comes into play, a common denominator seems to be very 
hard to find.

When thinking about Lazarus now exiting the v0.xxx state not a good omen.
