Hm... now I understood and fully agreed. Since Delphi's TEncoding is part
of its RTL and I've looked at its implementation to understand why I can't
get leaks compiling my code using it, and there is no definition in
copyright of when exactly a work is independent and when it is derivative,
so anything I do can be understood as rewrite.
