There is not much to say.

There will be 2 sets of units:
* Unicode
* AnsiString

for unicode, there is no problem, since everything is 2 bytes (ignoring some exotic codepoints here) 
so string encoding does not apply.

for ansistring, string=ansistring, there are some encoding issues, but the RTL is capable of using 
Widestrings for all OS interface routines.
