This reminds me, I still have some local commits of work I have done
over December on the cpstrnew branch. I'll see if I can make some time
this week and push those to SubVersion.

I have extensive code that requires Unicode string types (like D2009).
I can't keep the code in sync any more with Delphi because of the lack
of Unicode in FPC - so I had to resort to stay on a older version of
the framework in question. If there is any volunteers to help with
this (unicode support in FPC) task, it will be a great step forward
for FPC.
