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.
