need to explicitly declare Free Pascal mode in a Free Pascal program? In
21st century, our string should not be limited to 255 chars anymore. And
what the hell is "writable constant"? It's contradictio in terminis. :)

We have a strong focus on backwards compatibility, so the default mode
stays "fpc" and changing a modes' default settings would also affect
backwards compatibility.
