Don't you think after more than a year of decision-making about Unicode it is 
necessary for a serious compiler to actually make and communicate a decision?
Don't you think for a serious compiler there should be communicated design 
goals and the missing pieces and necessary boring improvements should be done 
before adding sexy new things?
Or is FPC simply a playground for the FPC-developers? Then that should be 
communicated too and I probably was wrong to invest so much time into the 
development of MSEide+MSEgui.
