Actually... none. :)

Hmmm... very nice advice. :)

So, may I conclude that FPC is targetting D7 language compatibility? That's 
sound fair enough to me, and -thanks God- I can live with that. :)

Is the D7 compatibility has been reached fully or partially or still under 
development? How far the compatibility of FPC v.2.0 with D7? Is there any docs 
explain about this issue? Because I still failed to compile my D7 codes under 
FPC 2.0. It's an D7 codes utilizing dbExpress components.
