Depends on your code.

Nobody forces you to use ansistrings or unicodestrings. 
You can perfectly write your own library for string management if you are
so inclined.

But I for one am grateful that I don't need to bother with memory management for
strings, except perhaps on special occasions.

So I think it is really good.
