This of course triggers my standard answer to such wording:

"It does make sense to first decide whether you want to drink tea or 
beer before opening either the cupboard or the fridge."

Meaning that - regarding the limited resources - a community should 
first discuss exactly what effort (what kind of implementation in 
detail) would make sense, before anybody bothers to start coding.

I do know that you thing along very different lines (and do provide 
fantastic work as a result :-) ).

But the (IMHO) abysmal design (much too closely following Delphi) of the 
Unicode support shows the negative result of lacking research before 
starting coding (see 

-Michael (more a researcher than a coder ;-) )
