Which reminds me: Delphi uses a different style of resource string 
system. In FPC you can set up the resourcestrings table based while in 
Delphi a "LoadResString" function is used each time a resourcestring is 
accessed. You can override the default functionality by setting a 
corresponding procedure variable. See also here 

It wouldn't solve the problem of "declaring a resourcestring" though and 
also the function doesn't get the "resource string identifier" as the 
table based function in FPC currently gets... so in that regard the 
system seems more limited (while it has some positive aspects as well).
