No, but I don't see fpc moving towards String equals AnsiString(CP_UTF8).
It would be hugely Delphi imcompatible.

For me personally Delphi compatibility does not matter at all, I have
left Delphi and won't return.
But from the fpc side, breaking compatibility in such a way is
probably going to be a big no-no.

But you are rigt, we are getting off-topic more and more.
Sorry for that.
