In fact FPC already supports zerobasedstrings and FireMonkey is just 
another GUI framework like VCL, LCL, fpGUI and MSEgui. Additional 
versions would mean additional maintainence burden and this is something 
that we could not stem affordably with the current team size... (guess 
why we only support the last release of FPC...)
