True, and keep in mind that this "shadowing" is already the case, and paying
off. Most real serious/professional FPC users turn out to be somehow linked
to Borland Delphi.

Alike, but slightly different implementation seems to be the "selling" point.

But Carl, why are you pursueing VIS? Only because it is not .NET, or does it have advantages
in certain area's itself?
