OK, that's reasonable.

Our project doesn't contain non-unicode support any more.

Yes, but not before 1.2 release (which will not take too much time)

It will be hard work:
- many comboboxes are filled from db, you might even force uncatched
errors here.
- some (few) strings are exchanged at runtime. First that comes to my
mind is "Users/Groups" on the privileges tab, selectable by "display
users in privileges". You could scan for CTRL_STATIC in the sources.
