The System.pas unit is special. In older Delphi version it cannot be
compiled at all, in newer versions I never tested it. The problem here
are syntax errors, the implied type declarations for the standard types,
and possibly the multiple use of System.pas, which is implicitly used by
every unit. No intentional or expressed limitation to use an Delphi
compiler, only sloppyness ;-)
