what? it's the simplest thing in the world. You loop through all the 
elements of the TVarRec array, last to first, and push them on the stack, 
then you push the formal arguments. Sure, it generates a lot of code, but 
it's not that hard. I mean, variable arrays store the length and TVarRec 
stores the type of the data, is there something I don't get?

Pseudo code:

  Integer i, l;

l:= Length(Array);

for i:= l - 1 downto 0 do

(* known at compile time *)


(* FormalParamsSize known at compile time *)
Pop(l + FormalParamsSize);
