[fpc-devel] Dynamic codepages etc.

If my understanding is correct, under certain circumstances FPC now 
considers the dynamic codepage of a string and propagates information 
across operations.

I wonder whether this would be a good time to introduce some form of 
taint marking, i.e. a flag indicating that a string is of external 
origin which propagates until a (trusted) function asserts that it's 
been fully checked?

(I've been planning to ask this for a few days, but have just noticed 
which might have been intended as an "April Fool" joke but still makes a 
good point.)
