[fpc-devel]Questions about building an IDE/RAD System

Guess my reply would have to be that: I have a full replacement for the 
Delphi IDE that I have already written, its based on the Jedi VCL and 
Extension Lib.  Thou I will be taking a look at Lazarus and seeing how it 
was done.  My current IDE works for PHP4Windows (My own creation that will 
go public some day), Delphi, C++, and a few internal languages.  So adding 
support won't be the problem it will be getting all of the controls 
currently supported to cross compile that will be the pain since FP doesn't 
have an equilivent of BPL's that I can find.
