That could be done... but it needs some common FPC standard -- via
interfaces? Like ITreeElement, I HashElement? Anyway, I'm not good at
"one cycle less" stuff, so such units would still need a lot of
optimizing by someone else... I think I'd pass up on this one.

Havn't seen that one yet.

Oh my... I've got a huge library of my own things, usualy needing a lot
of optimization, but mostly roguelike-games related :-/. I also have a
few "libraries" written using Jedi-SDL.

This could work. But I guess the set standard for that documentation
would be fpcdoc? Still need to figure out how to use that one... :-/
