Not a good idea.
The FPC developers are right now busy implementing the new Delphi
Strings. This _could_ mean that the application programmer can use any
encoding (such as multiple different ANSI byte-codes, UTF-8, UTF-16,
...), but in fact to be 100% Delphi compatible ("nothing less, nothing
more"), it seems that only UTF-16 will gain full decent support (e.g.
class inheritance, in TStringList, the Lazarus user API etc.)
