8 or 16 bit codes ? In Delphi XE this seems to be 16 bit, in Delphi 7 
and the currently released Lazarus this seems to be 8 Bits.

In fact I did ask for a way to distinguish all this verbally (not the 
keywords in a source file) to allow for doing a non ambiguous 
discussion. This needs Names that denote the version of the library used.
