I have copied in the past some of the TMaskEdit logic and methods to
the MaskUtils unit.
Things like SplitEditMask etc.
So, basically the behave the same (on 1-byte ANSI strings).

The code in MaskEdit unit is the father of the code in MaskUtils.

Fpc to some extent follows what we do here.

I do NOT want to use the code from MaskUtils in the MaskEdit unit, for
reasons I explained in my previous code.
