I'm creating another more advanced (and 99% compatible with Delphi) version
of the library Generics.Collections (without GetValueSize and
GetReferenceToValue specially for Sven :P) and I have some dilemmas about

What happened to tkLString? All strings with code page, UTF8String,
AnsiString, RawByteString etc. become tkAString. In Delphi analogous types
are as tkLString. tkLString is deprecated/dead? ;) I can't find the type
that have tkLString "type kind".

Another thing: Why there is tkUChar when we have tkWChar?... I can't find
the type that have tkUChar "type kind" too (UnicodeChar is tkWChar).
