One might argue about changing the default mode, but changing the default
String type of mode ObjFPC will very likely result in compilation or
runtime errors (probably even in the compiler itself) which is something we
tend to avoid without good reasons. At the very least there will be
performance differences which - depending on the code - might be noticeable
as well.
