This argumentation is ridiculous, string usage in Java has tons of
traps. To start with it is a special class type with special handling
and immutable o.O Then you have no var parameters to pass them around
(and even if you had, they are immutable)...etc

But let's go back to real arguments: Do you have any big applications
written in Lazarus? If you had, how happy would you be having to
convert them from utf-8 to utf-16?
