The converter is clever enough to ask from user what to do with an unknown
unit name.
It can be commented out or the user can search and select its location.
However, scanning the parent directory makes the number of "stupid"
questions lower as the obvious locations are already found.

Lazarus source editor and debugger must work accurately but Delphi
conversion is all about heuristics. :)
