Of course I did mean compatibility to "New" Delphi Strings.
But here (seemingly) TStrings (and with this TStringList) works on a
single pre-defined (2-Byte) encoding. And hence any other encoding (as
well 2 Byte as 1 Byte) needs time consuming conversions in and out.
Changing this would need a new "versatile" String Type that is not
available in Delphi and hence not compatible.
