We need both, as Marco mentioned. The main issue is that on Unix
platforms, to fix it properly you must interpret the parameters
according to "DefaultSystemCodePage at startup, or in case a separate
widestring manager is used then right after that one was initialised".
Maybe we need another Default*CodePage variable which indicates the
"real" system code page...

"If you use FPC 2.7.1 or later then ..."
