Yes. And Stack is now mostly gone (a single shared Linux server 
remaining), so the whole BSD motivation is also gone after 25 years.

I do a lot of Windows, but I don't use registry, neither in Delphi nor 
FPC. In both places I mostly use TXMLConfig for configuration.  I 
already did some of the simpler stuff, and see if I can chip stuff off 
in the coming days.

But I can remember that the mentioned utf8* in Windows code were a code 
smell back then, and I waited long to merge them. So I'm not surprised 
this turns up now.

But my coming weekends are a bit busy, my brother is moving.
