It's not different from Delphi, where the introduction of UnicodeString 
required a renewed RTL, VCL and IDE. Who should do the same for FPC and 
Lazarus, and tell the users that they either have to stay with an old 
(frozen) Ansi release, or must upgrade all their code and component 
libraries to the new strings, RTL and LCL? IMO a typical loose-loose 
situation :-(
