Totally agree with you! Let the FPC developer team concentrate on the compiler 
and language enhancement, and let the rest of us do the supported units. If FPC 
can do all the Delphi can do, then... viola!! all codes on Torry will be 
compilable on FPC. And the concept of "write once, compile everywhere" will be 
very much closer to the object pascal language. Isn't that nice? :)
