No, you are wrong. They support long filenames. If you do not trust me, download my modified 1.0.4 version compiler from:  whitch supports 8- bit characters in filenames (also spaces, because it is one more bug in 1.0.4 version)(simple replace compiler in your "fpc\win32\bin" directory). Only one problem for full support is unit names because they must be equal to filename. But this problem is also easy solved. Match more there are support for 8-bit characters in program source (in identifiers).
