I already suggested this, and JP's remarks are correct:

- It is very old and several functions he uses are missing. 
- This is indy, the lib is possibly linked to the net, security is an issue.
  Over the years several indy bugs have been fixed, and nobody knows the
  status of these for paszlib (and how many paszlib introduces, but at least
  those are somewhat covered by the obscurity thing)
